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 Jessica Litwak, the artistic director of the H.E.A.T. Collective and the New Generation Theatre Ensemble. Her new play <em>My Heart is in the East </em>will be performed at La Mama in New York this spring. Litwak has performed on stages across the U.S., and in Europe. She received her B.F.A. in acting from ETW at NYU and her M.F.A. in playwriting from Columbia, and is currently completing her Ph.D. in theatre for social change. Litwak is a core member of Theatre Without Borders, and is a cofounder of Artist Safety Net. She is a Fulbright Specialist Scholar. Sponsored by the Summer 2015 Playwright’s Lab at Hollins.
