The Dramatists Guild Fund’s Traveling Masters Program is a national outreach program that brings prominent dramatists into communities across the country to lead master classes, workshops, talkbacks, and other public events. In partnership with leading regional theaters like the Contemporary American Theater Festival, Traveling Masters creates local programming that gives local writers, theater professionals, and the public first-hand experience with these renowned artists.
Chisa Hutchinson joins over 30 esteemed dramatists who have participated in the Traveling Masters Program. Other 2016 Traveling Masters have included Anna Ziegler (Photograph 51, The Last Match) in Pittsburgh, PA; Lynn Ahrens & Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime, Once On This Island) in Kaneohe, HI; Madeleine George (The (curious case of the) Watson Intelligence) in Charleston, SC; Laura Jacqmin (Dental Society Midwinter Meeting, Residence) in Ashland, OR; Lauren Yee (King Of The Yees, The Hatmaker’s Wife) in Kansas City, MO; and Terrence McNally (Master Class, Love! Valour! Compassion!) in Buffalo, NY.
“The idea that, even at a point in my career where I feel like I still have so much to learn, I might actually have something to offer in the way of craft or advice… that’s incredibly humbling and validating all at once. What a great way to keep practicing writers, who are always so concerned with what happens next, connected with what’s happening now.” – Chisa Hutchinson (She Like Girls, Dirt Rich)
Chisa Hutchinson’s play “The Wedding Gift” is having its world premiere at the Contemporary American Theater Festival now through July 31, 2016. For tickets and information about the current season, visit: http://catf.org.
