Terrific kick-off event for the tutterow fellows!

On Saturday, January 28th, our inaugural class of Tutterow Fellows presented excerpts of their works in progress, directed by Steve Wilson, Dawn Renee Jones, and Azar Kazemi. 

From L to R: Leean Kim Torske (Fellows Director), Derek Lee McPhatter, Rachel DuBose, Caroline Macon, Osiris Khepera, Loy Webb and Cassandra Rose.

We are so pleased to have these talented playwrights at Chicago Dramatists! Learn more about each playwright on the Tutterow Fellows page

Saturday Series

Most Saturday Series events are public readings of plays-in-progress, but other events include panel discussions and fireside chats with visiting artists. All plays are directed and rehearsed, but are presented with minimal staging. After each reading, audience members are invited to join in a moderated post-reading discussion.

Saturday, May 6th at 2pm

La Elotera by Ricardo Gamboa
