The event will feature Playwrights Conference Artistic Director Wendy C. Goldberg, Paulette Haupt, Artistic Director of the National Music Theater Conference and O’Neill alums Adam Gwon, Sarah Hammond and Deborah Zoe Laufer.

The Playwrights Conference at the O'Neill supports playwrights during the creation and development of new play projects including a residency for the month of July 2015 with a rehearsal process and two public readings.
The O’Neill center will also make itself available to potential applicants around the country by hosting three online question and answer sessions about the process on the Center's Facebook page Sept 30 at 1 PM, Oct. 5 at 3 PM and Oct. 15 at 6 PM.
