Bennington College: A Festival of Original Work- 2017

       New Play Festival

Drama at Bennington College is a community resource which more people should attend. Bob and I have enjoyed diverse, exciting  and engaging productions over the years. Whether it is a faculty or a student production, the work is of high quality. We had the pleasure of talking with a  student playwright, Julia Lorello, two student directors, Emma Plotkin  and Jamie Catana, and faculty member, Kirk Jackson.  They discussed the purpose and the process of these productions. Click on the links below to hear their ideas and experiences.
