Love, MJ Kaufman and Mart Crowly…alongside brand new voices with a spectacular line-up of theatrical events, readings and workshops. Once COVID hit, Doug, Michael and Nick scrambled to figure out to present PRIDE PLAYS 2020 entirely online. Join us for this DEEP DIVE celebrating the artists of this year’s PRIDE PLAYS and into the incredible process of creation behind-the-digital-curtain. Let’s dive in!
