Award-winning playwright Idris Goodwin, recognized for his works by the National Endowment for the Arts and National Public Radio, will present a staged reading of his new performance work on Thursday, October 25, at 6 p.m., at Oakton’s Studio One, 1600 East Golf Road, Des Plaines. The free event is part of the College’s Chicago Writers Series.
Goodwin’s play How We Got On – one of eight chosen by Connecticut’s Eugene O’Neill Theater Center for full development during the 2011 National Playwrights Conference – premiered at the 2012 Humana Festival of New American Plays in Kentucky. His latest drama, Blackademics, kicks off the 2012-2013 season at Chicago’s Ma’at Production Association of Afrikan Centered Theatre (MPAACT). Goodwin’s staged works also have been featured at Steppenwolf Theatre Company, American Theater Company, and the Los Angeles Theatre Center.
