Three playwright, three weeks

I dropped a hint yesterday that we’ll be announcing our next playwright soon, and as I said, we are all excited to get back to the year-long focus on a single writer, but for now we’re trying to keep up with a busy summer schedule that has us exploring three playwrights over the next three weeks:

2007 featured playwright Pearl Cleage is on stage now – A Song for Coretta runs through July 26th in the first floor studio at the Greenhouse Theater.

2002 featured playwright John Guare is just up the stairs – I’m sitting in the dressing room of the second floor studio at the Greenhouse right now, where I should really be helping get the space ready for Six Degrees of Separation, which opens July 26th.

2003 featured playwright Neil Simon is waiting in the wings – last year’s production of Plaza Suite will be back for one weekend at the Chicago Park District’s annual summer festival Theatre on the Lake, on Lake Shore Drive at Fullerton, August 5-9.

And we still have two more to go – we just finished casting 2001 featured playwright Romulus Linney‘s Democracy, which opens in November, and we’re planning an extended Playwright Scholar Series event this fall exploring 2004 featured playwright Keith Reddin.

After that, the Celebration will be complete, and we’ll turn our full attention to – but I’m not allowed to say yet.
