Alliance/Kendeda Week

Join us as we celebrate the Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition. From March 7–9, 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, Alix Sobler, in a special conversation on March 7 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 will be staged in The Woodruff Arts Center's Memorial Arts Building (the same building that the Alliance Stage is in) in either the Black Box Theatre (on the third floor) or the Rich Theatre (on the main floor).
