Memory is a treacherous force in “Memoirs of a Forgotten Man,” D.W. Gregory’s suspenseful and carefully wrought what-if, set in the Soviet Union during, and just after, Stalin’s rule.
Radium Girls just closed a sellout run at Mana Little Theatre in Plimmerton, New Zealand.
“The Sudden Sixties” was featured in The Ferber Project at New Jersey Repertory Company May 30-June 3. The play was one of five short works based on short stories by Pulitzer-Prize winning novelist Edna Ferber.
D.W. Gregory was one of 78 Maryland artists to be recognized for excellence in their field by the Maryland State Arts Council at a celebration on May 20 in Baltimore. The 2018 Individual Arts Awards were chosen from among 367 applicants and included grants to 18 playwrights from around the state.
On March 3 and 4, the celebrated playwright of “Radium Girls,” DW Gregory is coming to Millersville University for a post-show talkback with the audience. She is also giving a workshop on playwriting. Her show “Radium Girls” has been done at countless schools, but the idea all started with a drive and desire to tell the girls’ story.
Every year the Fringe produces a few real standouts among its more serious offerings. D.W. Gregory’s thoughtful and funny Salvation Road is an excellent example. Anchored by a talented young cast and brimming with intellectual brain food, Salvation Road is a powerful little play about the opaque nature of understanding and belief.
