Theatre Alum Named to Goodman Playwrights Unit

Thursday, September 20, 2018

Theatre alumna Stacey Rose has been named to the Goodman Theatre's Playwrights Unit in Chigago, one of four playwrights to be so honored. The Playwrights Unit, in partnership with Chicago Dramatists, meets bi-monthly to discuss their commissioned plays-in-progress with the Goodman’s artistic team. The residency culminates in a public staged reading of each new play in Summer 2019.

Rose graduated from UNC Charlotte in 2008. She then completed an MFA in Dramatic Writing from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. In 2015, she received a prestigious Dramatists Guild Fellowship and in 2017, a Many Voices Fellowship from The Playwrights' Center in Minneapolis, MN.
