Project Dramaturg Joanna Garfinkel and Fringe New Play Prize winners Sara Vickruck and Anaïs West share thoughts about the development of “Poly Queer Love Ballad” and the unique relationship between songwriting, slam poetry and playwriting.

Our playwrights are working on some great projects.
Wow. Unscripted: Where the Devil Can't Go was such a powerful night! Vodka and ginger beer flowed, Jb the FirstLady performed two inspiring sets of spoken word/song, Julia Siedlanowska and Baraka Rahmani brought Veronique West's writing to life, A Wake of Vultures animated the space with beautiful, engaging installations and Vostok charmed us up with their amazing harmonies. So many people to thank, too many to name, but Dziękuję to all who witnessed, supported and reimagined theatre with us! Photos by Chris Randle.
Working on your own solo show or starting a new one? Join Block M for Monologue with Heidi Taylor to ignite your next project. Participants will work on their feet and on the page, solo and in groups in this immersive introduction to solo creation. "Working with Heidi is a unique artistic experience. Sometimes, when I work with Heidi I think I am like a dragon...Left to my own devices, I would expend all my energies blowing smoke rings in my mountaintop cave or laying waste to forests and hamlets. But luckily for me, Heidi is a magical wizard/blacksmith, who tames and directs my hot air and fire into a forge." - Tetsuro Shigematsu, PTC Associate 2017-20
