Playwrights Project's "Reflections from Inside"
at San Diego REP 
Come hear "Inmate Stories" 
inspired by "Station Eleven" 
Short scenes by playwrights in our Out of the Yard program will be presented by Write Out Loud on May 3rd at San Diego Writer's Ink as "Inmate Stories." The writing was inspired by "Station Eleven" as part of the "Read Imagine Create" program, which celebrates the NEA Big Read, a National Endowment for the Arts program that encourages communities to read, share, and get excited about a good book.
You can learn more about Write Out Loud's upcoming performances and the NEA Big Read in the San Diego Union Tribune!
