Jeanne Workshops Jiehae Park’s HANNAH & THE DREAD GAZEBO at 2016 Ashland New Plays Festival

Finally made it to Ashland, Oregon!  This gorgeous place is home this week to the very first Ashland New Plays Festival Women’s Invitational, featuring the new works of three fantastic women playwrights — Jiehae Park’s HANNAH AND THE DREAD GAZEBO; Lauren Yee’s KING OF THE YEES, and Martyna Majok’s COST OF LIVING.

I first workshopped HANNAH at the 2013 Ojai Playwrights Conference and what a pleasure it is to be revisiting the play three years later — and to learn that HANNAH will have its world premiere next year here in Ashland in the 2017  Oregon Shakespeare Festival Season. Congratulations to Jiehae, Lauren, and Martyna for their fabulous work this week — I can’t wait to see each of these works making their world premieres soon, and I’m thrilled to witness each of these women enriching our lives with their dynamic visions and voices.
