Episode 2.03: Laura Neill, Don't Give Up the Ship!


This month’s featured playwright is the amazing Laura Neill, who has packed a lot of accomplishment already in her young career. Her nautical fantasia Don’t Give Up the Ship was produced by Fresh Ink Theatre in 2017. We talk 18th century seamen, townies of the Hamptons, Opera Divas, Iron Chef playwriting, and so much more. Plus: co-host Haley Fluke explains dramaturgy!

Laura’s play Winter People is being produced in December by Boston Playwrights Theatre December 6-16! Go here for more information.
