Samuel French, Playbill and HowlRound present #IdentityWeek, a free four-day panel event exploring racial, cultural, sexual and gender identity in the theatre. The talks take place September 27-30 at the Vineyard Theatre.

The event launched with Playwrights & Their Identity. Should a playwright write for their identity? Are playwrights sought out by specific theaters because of their ethnicity or cultural background? Partly inspired by Damon Chua's article,Asian Playwrights and Asian Characters: What's the Deal?, this panel will focus on the impact and influence of a playwright’s perceived identity on their writing and within our theatre community.

Panelists include playwrights Damon Chua, Lydia R. Diamond, A. Rey Pamatmat and Kimber Lee. Moderated by Pippin Parker, Director of The School of Drama, The New School.
