Joshua Young is a proud member of The Public Theater’s 2018-2019 Emerging Writers Group. His play Red Room on a Dark Web was a 2018 Eugene O’Neill Theater Center—National Playwrights Conference semifinalist and a 2018 SPACE on Ryder Farm semifinalist. He’s a founding member of The Playwriting Collective, a playwright driven initiative designed to support writers from lower economic backgrounds.
This February, Brooklyn Repertory Theater will present a fresh interpretation of Chekov’s Three Sisters, the third production of its inaugural season.
Amina Henry writes plays that are big question marks. Plays that don’t have the answers but instead dig deep into the intricacies of human contradiction. She finds sustenance in the parts of humanity that are simultaneously vexing and enticing. There’s something valiant and audacious about the questions Amina asks in her work. And there’s something special about a playwright asking you to think something rather than telling you to think something.
