No Drama. All urge.

Why dramaturg?

My work as a dramaturg comes from my desire to champion other writers and be their advocate. The best dramaturg listens to what the playwright wants to achieve, and then asks all the least convenient questions. I don't proscribe: I notice, I observe, I comment, I nudge. Mostly, I love writers, and love helping them be their best them.

Tira Palmquist is “the real deal”. Looking for the playwright’s voice that best reflects the American Experience today? You’ve found it.
