Meet the new Directing Fellows
We’re pleased to introduce you to the 2017/18 Clubbed Thumb Directing Fellows: Sarah Hughes, Taylor Reynolds and Lily Riopelle. This fall they’ll work on newly commissioned plays by playwrights Xavier Galva, Will Arbery and MJ Kaufman with student actors from Playwrights Horizons Theater School, and in January we’ll present those plays with professional casts at our third-annual WINTERWORKS. Read more about the directors and the program HERE
A giant THANK YOU to the many many artists, production and technical staff, interns, volunteers, and audiences who made Summerworks 2017 an incredible success. We are immensely proud of this season, and are already getting excited for the fall. Stay tuned for information on our next Biennial Commission; the third iteration of our Directing Fellowship, and so much more – coming soon!
