Professor’s Playwright Scheduled to be Performed in Austin

Professor Mark Charney’s play “Incline/Decline” will be performed in a fully staged version at the Frontera Festival in Austin next spring. His play “Pogrom in Pelzer” was featured at the Santa Clarita New Works Festival in May. Charney was named KCACTF Representative to ATHE for the next several years. He was also invited to be a keynote speaker at Hollins College’s MFA New Play Development Process in Virginia this July.

Charney held his second WildWind Performance Lab during June, inviting 13 professionals to meet with students to develop and devise new works. He just returned from the O'Neill Institute as Associate Director of the National Critics Institute.
