Community Theater Heroes by Chris Murphy & Jennifer Logan - 3M ago

In episode 20, the Community Theater Heroes (Chris Murphy and Jennifer Logan) interview Mark S.P. Turvin, the dramaturg for Venus in Fur currently playing at the Twilight Theater Company.

Mark talks about his process as a dramaturg, which is incredibly fascinating! (Seriously... we had very little knowledge about dramaturgy work before sitting down and talking with him.) He also shares stories from his own career and discusses his work as a Playwright, which is equally as fascinating!

We encourage you to check out Venus in Fur currently playing at the Twilight Theater Company in Portland, and to also attend the monthly script reading group that Mark facilitates (also at TTC) the the first Monday of every month!
