The Amoralists year-long playwright development program, in which 6 authors face off with their harshest critics, themselves, through guided artistic challenges and structured peer support. We are a community of playmakers bound by the principles, and strengthened in the practice, of courageous vulnerability.
To build a community of artists, focusing primarily on writers for the theatre; To deepen authors’ understanding of their own process through production; And to broaden the theatre community's conversation about playmaking.
Attend a 'Wright Night
And see the "anti-talkback"
you've been dying for...
‘Wright Night is the public forum of the ‘Wright Club program. At ‘Wright Night audiences witness 2 one-acts staged on their feet—not read behind music stands! After the performances, audiences sit ringside as the authors viscerally explore the work in a way never before seen. Subverting the traditional “talk back,” the 2 playwrights engage one another in a dialectic method designed to elicit dramatic, profound communication, a debate style that must be experienced to be fully understood.
