Launching SouthAsianPlaywrights.Org / by R. Sheth

Silk Road Theatre Project announces the debut of SouthAsianPlaywrights.Org, a dynamic new website created to showcase and promote American and Canadian playwrights of South Asian descent. SouthAsianPlaywrights.Org aims to create greater visibility for the twenty five playwrights currently featured on the site and promote each playwright’s work to theatre companies, cultural organizations, and academic institutions, as well as to artistic directors, producers, directors, literary managers, editors, publishers, and all other interested parties. The belief is that enhanced exposure will result in an increase in the number of productions these talented playwrights receive.
