Latinx Playwrights' Workshop Festival, June 6th, 2021
This project started as a weekly gathering for playwrights Diana Mucci, Linda Amayo-Hassan, and Mel Nieves, to hear their work read out loud and to provide one another with valuable feedback.
Then they decided to share their work publicly.
With the support of fellow creators, the inaugural Back of the Yards Latinx Playwrights' Workshop Festival was formed.
