PlayMakers Repertory Company and The Process Series proudly present “Making Tracks,” a new play reading series tackling some of the most prescient issues of our time. Dedicated to representing a wide variety of perspectives, “Making Tracks” will feature readings of four plays by four vastly different voices: a UNC-Chapel Hill student playwright, a faculty playwright, a national playwright and an international playwright. The series will run from the afternoon of April 13 into the evening of April 15, in conjunction with “Leaving Eden,” the world-premiere of PlayMakers’ first full commissioned work, originally developed in partnership with The Process Series.
“PlayMakers’ goal is to become a creative home for the development of playwrights’ most socially conscious and ambitious work,” says PlayMakers’ Producing Artistic Director Vivienne Benesch. “‘Making Tracks’ is a new platform that gives us that opportunity, and this inaugural year provides a great taste of the exciting range of voices and stories that we can expect to see. I am thrilled to be collaborating once again with the invaluable Process Series, whose 10-year track record developing significant work for the performing arts provides a great launching pad.”
Process Series Artistic Director Joseph Megel, agrees, “Our collaboration is a perfect marriage, both organizations focusing on the process of creation of plays that truly makes a difference. These four compelling voices interrogate some of the most pressing issues of our time.”
