LPC & Primary Stages Announce The Intensive Mentorship: Digital Reading Series

4 New Plays By 4 Latinx Playwrights Mentored By 4 Latinx Legends

LPC & Primary Stages Announce The Intensive Mentorship: Digital Reading Series The Latinx Playwrights Circle and Primary Stages are thrilled to announce that the playwrights selected for the Intensive Mentorship '19-'20 will be presented with a professional panel discussion followed by a live reading of their play. The goal of this format is to incubate the audience with specific questions dealing with the themes of the play. From there, the plays will push these conversations past the readings and give more insight into the developmental process these Latinx artists have engaged in with their mentorship in this program.

The Intensive Mentorship '19-'20 is a program created by Latinx Playwrights Circle's residency with Primary Stages, providing key support, collaboration, and visibility for Latinx playwrights. The program focuses on four playwrights partnering with four mentors culminating in four new plays. Playwrights were selected by multidisciplinary artists and mentored by Migdalia Cruz, Carmen Rivera, J. Julian Christopher, and Cndido Tirado. Each Digital Reading will be led by a panel underscoring unique themes of our Latinx playwrights' new work.
