OU MFA Playwriting Alum David Mitchell Robinson has just received a spot in the Playwrights Arena at Arena Stage in D.C! We are very excited about David’s awesome opportunity!
Here’s a quote from the website about the group,” Playwrights’ Arena is the newest new play initiative developed by the American Voices New Play Institute. Centering on a small collaborative group of local playwrights dedicated to the support and development of each other’s work, Playwrights’ Arena, facilitated by Director of Artistic Programming Robert Barry Fleming, meets throughout the year to investigate each other’s work and develop their dramaturgical practice as playwrights while creating new work. Playwrights’ Arena launched at Arena Stage in January 2013 and began a second round in February 2015″
