Chicago Dramatists 2020 End of the Year Celebration!

Friday, Dec. 18

7:00pm – 8:30pm CST


Join us Friday, December 18 at 7:00pm (CST) for our End of the Year Celebration! This is our way of celebrating all that our members have accomplished, created, and developed in 2020–and what better way than by showcasing work created by Chicago Dramatists writers and students, over the course of this past year? See below on how to access the Zoom link, and join in the fun! Join us on Zoom, as we present work from five powerful solo story tellers:

Addison Brown
Scottie Kersta-Wilson
Michael Herzovi
Krystel V. McNeil
With special performance by Resident Playwright: Arlene Malinowski

Have a drink and enjoy an array of solo pieces, all created and written during this past 2020 season. Then be sure to stick around to chat and mingle virtually! It’s been a wild, and oftentimes difficult year, but we are so honored that you have shared it with us, here at Chicago Dramatists. Thank you for your writing, your talent, and all that you’ve accomplished. Hope to see you there!
