National Playwrights video-conference on April 12 at Newton

On Wednesday, April 12, Georgia State University Perimeter College will co-host the National Playwrights video-conference, in partnership with New York University (NYU), live at the Newton campus and shown (via split screen streaming) on the remaining Perimeter College campuses as well as the Atlanta campus.

This year’s guest is Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, David Lindsay-Abaire, author of Rabbit Hole and Shrek. He loves interacting with students and is looking forward to meeting ours!  Ten of Perimeter’s English and drama students (two of whom are from Newton campus) will be asking him questions during the video-conference.

The conference may be attended in person on the Newton campus at the 2/N Lecture Hall on Wednesday, April 12, from 1 – 2:45 p.m. All are welcome, however space is limited. Professors who wish to bring classes are encouraged to reserves seats in advance.

This event has been facilitated in part by the efforts of Perimeter College emerita professor, Sarah Larson, in partnership with major universities across the country to bring Pulitzer Prize-winning playwrights to our campuses via video-conference since 1995.
