The Question Game

    The Workshop Theater is pleased to recognize Ashley Lauren Rogers as a playwright selected out of a competitive pool of applicants for our Fall 2020 Writer’s Intensive. The Writer’s Intensive is an eight-week long, playwright-driven process geared towards revising an existing play. Ashley was clear, hard working and quick in revising her one-act, which denied audiences the easy, dumbed-down, neat version of life as a punk rock transwoman grips with loss and so many unanswered questions in favor of acceptance of the complex, bittersweet reality of parents that just didn't show up. Our congratulations and thanks to Ashley.
