From Soup to Nuts: A Playwriting Craft Talk with KJ Sanchez

Date: 4:30pm - 6:00pm EDT April 9, 2013

Going from a question to a play to a production to audience engagement: a new vision for making and producing theater.

American Records’ founder and CEO KJ Sanchez has written ten plays, all ten began with a production and an opening day scheduled, well before a single word was written. All ten plays came from one single question, all came from spending time with and listening to real people and studying real events and all ended up having a life beyond the performance itself. In this craft talk KJ will discuss a new way of making and producing plays in American Theater.

KJ Sanchez is the 2013 Douglass Wallop Fellow at the Rose O’Neill Literary House. This event is part of her week-long residency at Washington College.
