Thank you for joining us at the Zolla/Lieberman Gallery as we celebrate our city’s rich heritage of black, indigenous, people of color and LGBTQ+ writers. We look forward to introducing you to playwrights Dolores Diaz, Kimberly Dixon-Mays, Emilio Williams and Catherine Yu. Please purchase your $110 ticket(s) today and join us for this amazing evening.

Support the creative process

Proceeds support the Out-the-Box New Play Festival, an annual event showcasing Chicago Dramatists BIPOC (black, indigenous, and people of color) and LGBTQ+ Resident and Network playwrights and their work. Space is limited.


Your support is critical. Chicago Dramatists is one of the very few organizations in the country focused on supporting dramatists at all levels of development – from apprentices to masters – through workshops, classes, readings and collaboration with actors, directors and audiences. If you would like to make an additional donation, please do so here.

Thank you for your generosity!
