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 SARAH RUHL. We read the three plays: Melancholy Play (2001), The Clean House (2004), and For Peter Pan on Her 70th Birthday (2017) to share our thoughts on Sarah Ruhl’s craft in playwriting. We hope you will check these plays out and listen to our conversation!
