New York City's Drama Book Shop welcomes playwrights Craig Lucas, Dael Orlandersmith, Rajiv Joseph, and Halley Feiffer for a roundtable discussion and script signing event organized by the Dramatists Guild of America December 12. They will be joined by Joey Stocks, editor of The Dramatist.
The Dramatist Live will kick off at 5 PM and continue through 6:30 PM. The event is free and open to the public.
Earlier this fall, Drama Book Shop Vice President Allen Hubby announced that the 100-year-old store was looking to relocate after facing a steep rent increase. The theatre community rallied in support of the shop following the news, with a slew of playwrights (including Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote much of In the Heights in the Drama Book Shop's basement, Quiara Alegría Hudes, Kristoffer Diaz, and Lynn Nottage, among others) visiting the store to sign copies of their plays.

The Drama Book Shop is currently still located at 250 W. 40th St.
