Pulitzer Prize winner & Tony Award nominee Martyna Majok returns to Ketchum with Off Broadway director Caitlin Sullivan to workshop a brand new play that Martyna has been writing with the support of Sun Valley Playwright’s Residency.
On September 28 at 7:00 PM, Sun Valley Playwright’s Residency invites you to attend a reading of an excerpt of Martyna’s new play-in-progress. The event is FREE of charge, and reservations are required.
Sun Valley Playwright’s Residency is a non-profit organization that gives playwrights time and resources to write in an inspired Idaho setting and provides the local community events that offer insight into writers’ creative processes. We foster new relationships between theatremakers and Idaho’s Wood River Valley community and fuel the American theatre with invigorating new plays that speak to our collective humanity.
Annually, we work with one playwright to foster a new play from idea to full draft, and we produce events centered on this playwright, their existing plays, and the new play they are writing. The playwright begins the residency with a month-long stay at the historic Ernest and Mary Hemingway House, which is owned and operated by The Community Library. Ernest Hemingway visited Idaho for more than two decades, and he made his final home here in 1959. The Hemingway House sits on 12 acres along the Big Wood River, looking out on the Pioneer and Boulder Mountains. After their stay at the Hemingway House, the writer returns home to continue writing the play with our continued support. The following fall, the writer returns to Idaho to workshop the new play, which culminates with a free reading of the play at The Argyros Performing Arts Center.
