Write Out Loud Artistic Director, Veronica Murphy shared, "We're excited to launch our 16th Season with a program of CLASSICS. The classics are the root of literature, the foundation of what we are passionate about. Storytelling has been a part of our culture for thousands of years and while it continues to evolve in style - it is ultimately all about people and the world we inhabit. We look forward to presenting another fantastic season of stories about people from across the globe."
