Story/Teller Arts: Lynn Nottage on Mlima's Tale with Damon Tabor

September 29, 7pm ET

The Center for Fiction & Livestreamed

15 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11217.

The Center for Fiction is thrilled to welcome Lynn Nottage, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Ruined and Sweat, for a conversation on her haunting, enthralling new play, Mlima’s Tale. Continuing Nottage’s tradition of crafting thought-provoking, socially conscious dramas, her play tells the story of Mlima, an elephant struck down by poachers for his magnificent tusks. Nottage is joined by journalist Damon Tabor, whose work focuses on conflict, drug trafficking, black markets, and the environment, and whose article, “The Ivory Highway” inspired Mlima’s Tale.

The Center for Fiction is thrilled to continue its collaboration with Theatre Communications Group for this fifth event, with past events featuring Jackie Sibblies Drury and Claudia Rankine, Annie Baker and Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, Heidi Schreck and Paula Vogel, and Sarah Ruhl and Matthew Aucoin.

Governance at the Crossroads: A Strategic Retreat

November 11

NYC + Virtual

Held virtually and in-person in New York City on November 11, Governance at the Crossroads: A Strategic Retreat will be a think tank for a deep, generative envisioning process. Through facilitated conversations around foundational questions of governance, we can collectively reimagine boards for a truly just and thriving theatre field.

One of the most popular sessions at our 2022 TCG National Conference was “It’s Broken, So Let’s Fix It: A Collective and Radical Reimagining of Theatre Boards.” You can view that session in our Pittsburgh Playback collection! Led by Michael J. Bobbitt, that session helped inspire our upcoming retreat.
