Essential Theatre Festival: Putting It All in the Same World
Essential Theatre is devoted to bringing new theatrical works by Georgia writers to the stage, giving local actors, directors and designers the chance to work on World and Regional Premieres.
Right now, the company is holding its annual Essential Theatre Festival.
WABE’s Myke Johns sat down with the festival’s two featured playwrights--Katie Grant Shalin and Matthew Myers--and Essential’s founding artistic director Peter Hardy to discuss the role that the event plays in Atlanta’s theater community.
