The Actual Playwriting Workshop and Theater Company

There is a new initiative in town based at the Social Justice Center on Central Ave. The Actual Theatre Company’s mission is to create a sustained Playwright’s workshop to build community, diversity, and inclusion by creating dynamic, original theater that represents the stories of real people in a manner that a diverse audience will find compelling, challenging, and inspiring, mentoring young and emerging local writer’s, so that they may recognize and achieve their potential, with a particular emphasis on inspiring and nurturing their educational as well as professional ambitions and sense of civic responsibility, and contributing to the vitality and vibrancy of the Capital region, by presenting a year-round season featuring the work of our participants.

They are hosting a Writers Salon on Friday January 19th featuring Shannon Turner, Randall Horton, and Lydia Davis
