A Watson Arts Project

From the garbage dump in Guatemala City, to the tent cities in Haiti, to the toxic oil ponds where birds expire, Luz, Helene and Zia -survivors of targeted violence-with the help of human rights lawyer Alexandra search for hope in the unlikeliest, in-between places. LUZ is a play that is at once volatile and tender, entertaining and surreal.

Anne Hamilton Interviewed on Cultural Weekly

There’s a great article on my thoughts on dramaturgy posted on Cultural Weekly’s website. Jaz Dorsey interviewed me. Read on at http://www.culturalweekly.com/theatre-dramaturgs-profession.html


I describe myself as a literary and historical advisor to the playwright, director, or theatre company I am working with.

Just like an actor or an artist, I believe that the dramaturg’s position in the field derives from her output.

Dramaturgy is a practical profession. We give advice and support to help the playwright advance her play to its next level. We provide and share research in pre-production, and write program notes. We translate and adapt.

Almost everyone in the theatre profession performs dramaturgical duties…
