"I''m just thrilled to be working with our new collaborators at the Den Theatre," comments #1MPF Producing Artistic Director Dominic D''Andrea. "To see the festival grow to include sixty playwrights, a dozen directors, and scores of actors is just thrilling. The wonderful thing about doing this work in Chicago is that collective community investigation into who we are in this moment, what we care about, and where we might be going. This cohort of writers took the opportunity to really engage in the investigation, so audiences will be in for a true look at where we are right now. That''s exciting to share!," adds D''Andrea.
