A podcast by two friends who met at Iowa Playwrights Workshop.
Join hosts Sam Collier and Sarah Cho as they try to figure out playwriting.

121. PLAYWRIGHT: Suzan-Lori Parks Beckett’s Babies

We return to our Playwright Series where we look at a single playwright and their large body of work. In this episode, we discuss the life and work of SUZAN-LORI PARKS. We read the three plays: Venus (1996), Topdog/Underdog (2002 Pulitzer Prize Winner), and Father Comes Home From The Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3) (2015) to share our thoughts on Suzan-Lori Park's craft in playwriting. We hope you will check these plays out and listen to our conversation!
