FST Forums – Reimagined: The Making of an Adaptation
May 13 : 11:00 am - 12:30 pmFree
FST invites you to join us for conversations with some of the country’s top playwrights creating art today. Hear directly from these artists about their processes and what it takes to get a play on its feet.
Kate Hamill is one of the most widely produced playwrights in America today. Well known for her contemporary adaptations of such works as Sense and Sensibility, Dracula, Emma, and more, Hamill is an expert at mining the subject matter of these classic works to transform them into exciting modern-day retellings. Hear from the playwright as she shares about her personal approach to the adaptation, how she invigorates new life into older material, and her most-recent work, The Party.
