Shipwright Sessions – Sharon King-Campbell


From published dramatic poetry to still-in-development musicals, the Shipwright Sessions give you the opportunity to hear excerpts of these works from the playwright themselves combined with an up-close look at the writer through mini-interviews led by Ship’s artistic director Richie Wilcox. This season, the Shipwright Sessions, which are free to the public and entirely online, will feature Santiago Guzman, Sharon King-Campbell, and Jiv Parasram.
