Playwrights

Meet our CCTA 2021 Playwrights!

For CCTA 2021, we asked 50 playwrights (well, actually, 51 playwrights) to write 5-minute plays inspired by the Green New Deal and its global equivalents. We encouraged them to show us what their dream future looks like – and how we might get there. We can’t wait to share the worlds that they have created!

They hail from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, France, Hong Kong, India, Kenya, Korea, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Uganda, the UK, and the US, and represent several Indigenous Nations. They are:
