This performance piece, a meditation on the artistic process and an actual work session, features Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks working on her newest writing project in the newly built mezzanine of The Public Theater lobby. The audience is invited to come and watch her work and/or to share the space and get some of their own writing work done. During the last fifteen minutes of the performance Parks will answer any questions the audience might have regarding their own work and their creative process.
WATCH ME WORK will take place on select weekdays for 75 minutes each day in the mezzanine of The Public Theater lobby. As the schedule and start times will vary, please check our website daily for the latest schedule. The performances are free and open to the public.
Suzan-Lori Parks is the Master Writer Chair at The Public Theater. Her work includes Topdog/Underdog, 365Days/365Plays and the novel Getting Mother's Body.
