Every year, I’m grateful to be on the final reading panel for Wisconsin Wrights. This five-year-old organization, created and sustained by UW-Madison faculty and staff, provides opportunities for emerging Wisconsin playwrights, which is reason enough to applaud their efforts.

Each had its own fascinating journey from new work to Pulitzer Prize winner to our stage.
