What it’s like to be a first-time playwright of color

Playwrights Tito Livas and Dee-Dee Darby-Duffin, both members of our Theatre Artists of Color Writing Workshop, share what it’s like to be first-time playwrights of color.

Their short plays, “Organic” and “DoLs” respectively, premiere as part of LOCAL COLOR, the final audio play in our 30th anniversary, COVID-19-aware, Zoom-rehearsed, audio-only, fully-virtual Subscription Series: a feast for your ears to safely stream at home or in the car.

LOCAL COLOR is comprised of four world-premiere short plays from the Theatre Artists of Color Writing Workshop: “DoLs” by Dee-Dee Darby-Duffin (a comedy about becoming fast friends in the most awkward situation imaginable); “Guise” by Chris Curlett (a dramedy about defining masculinity); “Organic” by Tito Livas (a dark comedy about love, perception and Grindr); and “Suicide Box” by Tatiana Christian (an even darker comedy about the deadly side of customer service).

LOCAL COLOR will stream as an audio play – well, plays! – on our website and free app between 8pm on Thursday, June 3, 2021 through midnight on Sunday, June 13, 2021.

If it were a film, it would be rated R; if it were a TV show, it would be rated TV-MA.
