Pulitzer winner will speak to playwrights

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies will be the guest speaker at this year’s Northeast Indiana Playwright Festival, the Fort Wayne Civic Theatre announced Monday.

The festival, which opens May 30, showcases the unpublished work of emerging and professional playwrights who are looking to produce one-act or full-length plays. The first-place submission, “Whispers to the Moon” by Kris Bauske, will be produced as a staged production. The second-place submission, “Tinfoil Memories” by Emily Farris, and third-place submission, “The Teapot Collector” by Jack Peterson, will be stage readings.

Margulies, an adjunct professor of English and theater studies at Yale University and writer behind the award-winning “Dinner with Friends,” will give a presentation on his career and lead the post-show discussions on “Whispers to the Moon.”
