40 Days of Essential Playwrights: 29 – Vynnie Meli

Vynnie Meli

Rhythm Darlings

Vynnie won the 2009 Playwriting Award Contest with her play, JIM CROW AND THE RHYTHM DARLINGS. After the opening night, we all agreed to cut what had been the final scene of the show, feeling that the next-to-last scene would make for a more powerful ending. Apparently audiences agreed: the play went on to be produced again that winter in Stone Mountain and won Best Original Work from the Metropolitan Atlanta Theatre Awards.

We are proud to have supported Vynnie’s work. Won’t you support ours? 29 days to go: https://www.power2give.org/go/p/8445
