Biennially, The Playwriting Center of Theater Emory produces Brave New Works. This festival provides theater professionals and students with the space and resources to conduct creative experimentation, to create new works for the stage, and to test the dramatic product on an audience. For three weeks, the Brave New Works festival of new and evolving plays gives playwrights a laboratory to work with a director and actors, revise and rewrite their scripts, and share the results with members of the Emory and Atlanta community.
Rosalind Sullivan-Lovett's one-act play Henry Darger Takes a Walk, recently staged at Emory as part of Brave New Works 2018, has won the Tennessee Williams Festival in New Orleans, an annual literary event held in the French Quarter, attended by writers and readers from across the country. The play contest winner receives a professional staged reading at the festival, publication in Bayou magazine, and a cash prize. Henry Darger Takes a Walk originated in an advanced playwriting workship at Emory, and was further developed through a Playwriting Center of Theater Emory Fellowship. Roz is currently a junior at Emory with a double major in Theater Studies and Creative Writing.
