Library Exhibit: Damnable Artifacts: Production Memorabilia from the Plays of Mac Wellman

Mac Wellman Homecoming Festival, March 23-25 at CSU
Mac Wellman Homecoming Festival 2017

The Mac Wellman Homecoming Festival, March 23 - 25, 2017, is a celebration of a groundbreaking playwright from Cleveland, Ohio, one who is widely recognized as among the most influential voices of the Off-Off-Broadway era.

Based for many years in New York, Wellman has authored dozens of plays, with productions spanning throughout North America as well as England, Germany, China, and Japan. In addition, he is regarded as a significant teacher of playwriting, and has impacted many of today's most important emerging writers from his position as head of the master of fine arts program at Brooklyn College. Mac Wellman is a major figure in American letters and an essential presence in the lineage of playwrights from the Cleveland area.

The Library exhibit, Damnable Artifacts: Production Memorabilia from the Plays of Mac Wellman, features set models, posters, programs, scripts, props, photos, postcards, T-shirts, and vintage reviews from productions spanning the career of the playwright. All items are original artifacts from the collections of lighting/set designer Kyle Chepulis and graphic designer David Prittie (both of the Flea Theater, NYC) and director/performer Clyde Simon (convergence-continuum theater, Cleveland). The exhibit is located on the first floor of the Library (in Rhodes Tower) and is free and open to the general public (extended through April 9) during regular Library hours.

Join us in giving long-overdue recognition to one of Northeast Ohio’s most lauded playwriting products. Schedule of Events.

Presented by Playwrights Local in partnership with Cleveland State University Department of English, the NEOMFA Creative Writing Program, and the Michael Schwartz Library.
