The Dramatists Guild Presents: TALKBACK

ABOUT

We’ve seen the stats. We’ve read the think pieces. Now we’re ready to TALKBACK. 

TALKBACK is the podcast for every dramatist or theater fan who wants, but maybe hasn’t seen, the inclusiveness we all imagined. TALKBACK entertains frank conversations about diversity, equity and inclusion. We ask the tough questions and don’t have all the answers but dig into dialogue that’s vital and messy and real. Join host Christine Toy Johnson and her industry colleagues from the pulse of the American theatre on TALKBACK. Look for new episodes every Monday through the end of November. Join the conversation on twitter using #DGTalkBack
