A Mellon Creative Process Series event featuring work from two playwrights from New York’s Ma-Yi Playwrights Lab, UW Drama faculty, and our graduate and undergraduate actors.

ESSPY by Nandita Shenoy
Directed by L. Zane Jones
Can compassion be taught? A medical student and an actor cross paths repeatedly during medical simulations, developing a friendship that reveals how much they have to learn from each other.

LET THERE BE LOVE by Mrinalini Kamath
Directed by Andrew Tsao
A modern mash-up of D.H. Lawrence’s Sons and Lovers and the Greek myth Eros and Psyche, Let There Be Love is a play about online dating and modern matchmaking, and our cravings for—and fears of—intimacy and connection.

The readings will take place on Thursday, January 18th at 6:00pm in the Cabaret Theatre in Hutchinson Hall. This is a FREE event.
