FST Forums Series

FST invites you to join us for conversations with some of the country's top playwrights creating art today. From issues of heritage and history to complexities around human technology to race in American theatre, we'll unpack some of the issues behind these artists' exciting new plays in development and why they're relevant today. Hear directly from these artists about their processes and what it takes to get a play on its feet.

All forums are free to attend, though registration is required. Sign up by clicking the links below, or call the FST Box Office at 941.366.9000.
