Congratulations to Anya Pearson, E. M. Lewis, and Sara Jean Accuardi for being chosen as finalists by Literary Arts for the Angus Bowmer Award for Drama.
Presented online by the Western Oregon Theatre Department:
Anya Pearson will collaborate with Portland Center Stage to develop a new work.
“I am beyond honored to receive this commission from Portland Center Stage — and to be part of this amazing and formidable lineup of BIPOC playwrights. … We need theatre now more than ever! The collective breath, the joy, the vulnerability, the investigation of the soul, and the reimagining of what it means to gather, to hold space, and to dream of a better world for all of us.”
Tune in with the Dramatists Guild for a DG Footlights virtual reading of Anya Pearson’s new work, COMMUNITY.
Wednesday, January 27, 7-9 p.m. PT
