Hamilton Dramaturgy Press Releases Two New Titles

Hamilton Dramaturgy Press has published two anthologies of plays and poetry. ANOTHER WHITE SHIRT And Other Plays and Poetry is a collection written in 2009. THE STACY PLAY – A LOVE SONG – VOLUME I was written in 2010. I had written such a large number of plays, short plays, monologues, clown plays and poetry, that I decided to publish it as a celebration of my twentieth year working as a dramaturg. The anthologies are available through www.lulu.com as paperbacks and Ebooks. I plan to publish one volume of my writing each year as a record of my literary muse.

The great American actress Kathleen Chalfant starred as my character Stacy Lee Madison in a production of AND THEN I WENT INSIDE in 2009. She encouraged me to expand the play, and so I turned it into the full-length THE STACY PLAY – A LOVE SONG – VOLUME I. It has been read and developed in many venues in New York City and Philadelphia.

In addition, I wrote almost twenty short plays and monologues in the last half of 2010, featuring such characters as a 9-point buck  (HEARTSHOT), an aid worker in Darfur (THE ONE), an animal shelter worker with a very long last name (THE HYPHENATA), and a transgendering youth who insists on creating his own identity (PRONOUNS). I also wrote five plays for clowns, four of them starring females.

I hope that you’ll enjoy these editions. Happy reading!

Hamilton Dramaturgy’s TheatreNow!

Thank you so much for your interest in TheatreNow!

On TheatreNow! I interview important contemporary female theatre artists, and I would like to make this series a seminal program that people from all over the world will listen to in the years to come. The podcasts  are also posted on my blog at http://hamiltondramaturgy.wordpress.com

TheatreNow! creates an online presence and library of female theatre experts’ ideas and opinions. I serve as Producer and Host, and Linsey Bostwick serves as Editor.

I’ve already posted conversations with: Quiara Alegria Hudes (playwright/librettist); Kristin Marting (director/artistic director); Claire Lautier (actor); Valentina Fratti (director/playwright); Ruth Margraff (musician/composer/writer); Yvette Heyliger (playwright) and Yvonne Farrow (actor/choralographer).

Others who have agreed to appear: Lynn Nottage (Pulitzer Prize winning playwright), Danai Guriri (actor/playwright), Laura Maria Censabella (playwright), Kamilah Forbes (writer/producer/curator), Alexandra Maria Beech (playwright)  and Anne Kauffman (director).

Rather than be a series focusing on biographical details, I conduct the interviews in such a way as to focus on each woman’s early artistic influences, her own assessment of her contribution to the professional theatre, and her artistic process. I also plan to post a written bio (also in digital form) from each subject on my blog http://hamiltondramaturgy.wordpress. com near the podcast.

I am very excited to create a lasting and seminal podcast series which ensure that women theatre artists can reveal and discuss their creative processes and influences.

Sincerely, Anne Hamilton – Producer and Host
