    Department of Dramatic Writing Day of Community Event

    October 2nd is a day set aside for all of Tisch to reflect upon what it means to be a “citizen artist.” Here at DDW, we’re going to ask ourselves hard questions about what we write when it comes to identity, how we approach identity, and what we do with historical work that is inherently and irreducibly offensive. A panel (including Shinho Lee, Sabrina Dhawan, Richard Wesley, Kristoffer Diaz, and Terry Curtis Fox) will be held where we will ask hard questions. The impolite questions that need to be voiced and discussed with respect.
