New York Theatre Workshop will present “The Wright Stuff,” a series of conversations led by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Doug Wright, beginning Tuesday January 19.
In this series of provocative and mirthful interviews with some of our sharpest contemporary satirists, Wright interrogates the idea that comedians are both the culture's true patriots and fit the classic model of "clown" or "court jester" in Shakespearean drama, using humor to articulate the day's most pressing and urgent truths. The series’ five guests, each featured in separate episodes, will be Andy Borowitz, Aasif Mandvi, Nancy Giles, Paul Rudnick and Jenny Hagel.
“The Wright Stuff” will be available to stream for free on NYTW’s YouTube channel and via the NYTW Digital Archive at nytw.org/streams.
