The Dramatists Guild Presents: TALKBACK: Where Art, Community, and Inclusion Meet.
It's time to expand the canon. Our new season of DG's Talkback podcast examines how we can challenge the status quo.
Over the course of six episodes, host Christine Toy Johnson and special industry guests explore how we can expand the canon of which plays are taught, read, programmed, and used to define the idea of what constitutes a classic in American theatre. We also discuss the idea of igniting the concept of the canon with new, actionable strategies. How can we be intentional in the ways that we make space for diverse, and inclusive stories, while also reimagining often the produced ones, so that the American landscape of storytelling is truly reflective of the gorgeous tapestry of people who inhabit it?
