The Dramatists Guild Presents: TALKBACK

ABOUT

Dramatic writers start their journey with the blank page. In our fourth season we are honoring the craft and inspiration it takes to bring stories to the stage and honoring the service of our Dramatists Guild Council members that give their time to make the world for all writers a better place. 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. Available on all your favorite podcast platforms. Join the conversation on twitter using #DGTalkBack.
