Announcing our 2016 P73 Playwriting Fellow

We are thrilled to announce our 2016 P73 Playwriting Fellow!

Hansol Jung

 

Hansol is a remarkable playwright who we are proud to have selected for the thirteenth annual P73 Playwriting Fellowship. Hansol will receive a $10,000 award and a development budget to use in collaboration with Page 73 throughout 2016. Her plans for the year include work on a play exploring the drug industry and further development of a romantic tragedy between a North Korean defector and her South Korean lover. We will produce at least one public workshop for Hansol this year, and look forward to inviting you!
