Miami Writes 2020
Miami Writes Program for New Plays by You
Facilitated by Bekka Eaton
About Miami Writes:
Miami Writes is a Miami University Hamilton Theatre program dedicated to the fostering and production of new plays by student and local playwrights. The program began in 2004. Past productions have included works by Brandon Berning (Miami Hamilton student playwright whose Miami Writes-developed play, A Painted Life, won second place in the 36th annual Great Lakes Region Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in 2005), Ruth Britt, Danielle Ervin, Roberta Flackwood and Bridget Ossmann. Ms. Ossmann’s work, the musical, Teachers Left Behind received a full production by MUH Theatre in 2010 in Parrish Auditorium. The Cincinnati Playwrights Initiative awarded this play and Ms. Ossmann’s more recent one, Purple Paint (a drama about a Kentucky coal mining family) the honor of readings at The Aronoff Center in Cincinnati. Allyson West’s 2015 Miami Writes submission winner, Texican, is now an award-winning film. Email Bekka Eaton for more information, eatonrl@MiamiOH.edu.
