Event Details

Playwright Clare Barron in Conversation
Friday Oct. 23rd 6:00-7:00 pm


The playwright takes us inside her writing process and shares the artistic goals and personal experiences behind Dance Nation. Director Daniel Larlham moderates.

DANCE NATION centers on a middle-school dance team preparing for national competition under the watchful eyes of their coach. Friendships are tested and failures bring growth, as team-mates compete for the spotlight and claim their budding power.  Praised by one critic as “an intellectual and emotional adventure that is rarely experienced at the theatre,” DANCE NATION was a finalist for the 2019 Pulitzer Prize in Drama and winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, which recognizes plays of outstanding quality by women playwrights.
