Each Monday night on the Waldron Stage of Mill Mountain Theatre, the Playwright’s Lab at Hollins presents a talk by a prominent working professional theatre artist. This week’s guest is Guy Zimmerman, who has served as artistic director of Padua Playwrights since 2001 and recently completed a doctoral degree in theatre and dramatic arts in the joint UC Irvine/UC San Diego program. Under his direction, Padua has staged over 35 productions of new plays, moving several to stages in Atlanta, New York City, Edinburgh, Prague, and Berlin, which have garnered a host of <em>LA Weekly</em>,<em> Ovation</em>, <em>Garland</em>, and Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle awards and nominations. Zimmerman has also edited an eight-volume anthology series for Padua Press, distributed nationally by TCG and produced and directed a series of digital media productions of original plays including <em>Pronghorn</em>, <em>Girl on a Bed,</em> <em>Gary’s Walk</em>, <em>Snout</em>, and <em>Great Things</em>. His own plays include <em>La Clarita</em>, <em>The Inside Job</em>, <em>Vagrant</em>, <em>The Black Glass</em>, <em>The Hillary Game</em>, and <em>The Royal</em>.
