50 Playwrights Project

The 50 Playwrights Project is a digital resource dedicated to contemporary Latin@ playwrights and other teatro allies.

The 50 Playwrights Project is engaged in filling the gaps about contemporary Latin@ theatre artists. This project serves as a dramaturgical and pedagogical database for artists, educators, scholars, and students who are looking for more online information about playwrights: where are they from, how do they identify, what are they working on, what advice would they give to aspiring artists, links to relevant online resources, and so on and so forth.

Inspired by Adam Szymkowicz’s “I Interview Playwrights” series, the first iteration of the project will feature 50 short, to-the-point interviews with contemporary playwrights working in the Latin@ theatre movement.
