Playwrights' Perspectives

Playwright’s Perspective: The Pain of My Belligerence

This play aims to explore the corrosive effects of the patriarchy on women and men alike — to examine the culture that has created the phenomenon of toxic masculinity and its insidious effects, and to start imagining ways we can break free.

Essay

The American Voice: Hard Laughs

This aching world is penned by a writer who’s a connoisseur of the purest laugh, the highest joke, the laugh that can laugh at that which is unhappy. It makes the medicine go down. (Adam Greenfield, Associate Artistic Director)

Essay

As a writer and actor in theater, television, and film, Halley Feiffer has a reputation for excavating the darkest depths of the human condition. (Lizzie Stern, Literary Manager)
