Alliance/Kendeda Week

Join us as we celebrate the Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition. From February –10, we will be featuring readings of this year's finalists, all directed by and starring some of Atlanta theatre's biggest names. Plus, you can meet this year's winning playwright, Jiréh Holder, in a special conversation on February 10 at 5:30 p.m. This schedule is subject to change.

All of the readings and conversations are free and open to the public (but please RSVP online) and, unless otherwise indicated, will be in the Black Box Theatre on the third floor of the Woodruff Arts Center's Memorial Arts Building (the same building that the Alliance Stage is in).
