ESSENTIAL THEATRE: GIVING GEORGIA PLAYWRIGHTS A VOICE ON GEORGIA’S STAGE
Since the first Essential Play Festival in 1999, we’ve presented 23 new works by Georgia authors, all receiving productions of the highest artistic quality through Essential and many going on to receive future productions elsewhere in Atlanta and across the country. Our vision in moving forward is to give Georgia playwrights an ever-stronger voice across the country and in the world, and in so doing, to continue to enrich our own community of artists and audience members at home.
