McCarter Live At The Library Featuring Emily Mann and Rachel Bonds: “Art, Life, Mentorship, and Motherhood”

January 5, 2020, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

McCarter Theatre Center Artistic Director and Resident Playwright Emily Mann and playwright Rachel Bonds engage in conversation. They will discuss their lives in the theater, working motherhood and their collaboration on Bonds’  plays “Goodnight, Nobody,” premiering at McCarter  Jan. 10 through Feb. 9, and “Five Mile Lake.” Mann will reflect on her artistic legacy as a champion for new voices, the work of women, and the next generation of playwrights in the American theater and about her special connection with and mentorship of Bonds. Bonds will talk about how new motherhood and other aspects of her life inspired the writing of both “Goodnight, Nobody” and her essay “Working Like a Mother” for HowlRound Theatre Commons at Emerson College. A Q&A with the audience will follow the discussion.

Presented in partnership with McCarter Theatre Center.
