To study Shakespeare, you go to the Riverside edition; to study contemporary drama, you need the New Play Exchange.
The New Play Exchange is the world’s largest digital library of plays by living writers. With more than 35,000 scripts by more than 8,500 writers – and growing each day – the utility of this tool in our current educational climate is limitless. In this hour-long webinar designed specifically for educators, the Architect and Chief Evangelist for the NPX, Gwydion Suilebhan, will share how the New Play Exchange can be used to study theater, especially in a remote-learning environment. In addition to providing access to this growing canon, students and educators can use the NPX to gain access to professional playwrights, dramaturgs, and other theater-makers, and use the robust search functionality to inspire civic engagement on a range of topics from climate change to #BlackLivesMatter.
