Alyson Mead, 2016 New Works Contest Winner

Mesa Community College Performing Arts Center, 1520 S Longmore, Mesa, AZ 85202, hosted this reading after a week of development with the playwright and New York-based director, Stefanie Sertich, in residence on February 25th @ 2pm, 2017. The reading was followed by a brief talkback with the playwright and creative team.

We have also named two plays Honorable Mention winners. Sarah Bierstock’s Honor Killing follows an American reporter investigating a murder in Pakistan. InAnchuli Felicia King’s White Pearl, six women from six Asian countries collide in the boardroom of a whitening skin cream brand. The Bridge Initiative is cultivating a relationship with these playwrights and plays, with the hope of bringing them to our audience.
