30 - Only Children 1998 first GA production in a Festival

Many of our writers have two, three or even more plays produced by Essential: Karen wrote ONLY CHILDREN, the Georgia play we produced in our first festival in 1999, as well as MISS MACBETH, which premiered with Essential in 2005. She also wrote a very popular segment from NIGHT TRAVELS, which we produced in 2007.

“Essential Theatre’s mission is one much needed — to champion and showcase promising work by Georgia playwrights, and my experience with the Festival was terrifically satisfying. By the way, Peter Hardy has been working for years in support of new plays and new playwrights. Even before the founding of the Essential Theatre, he was instrumental in bringing my work to public attention. I think he’s one of the great unsung heroes of Atlanta theatre.”
