DON'T MISS OUT — STUDENT MATINEES FILL UP QUICKLY!
"I decided to become a playwright after seeing August Wilson's Joe Turner's Come and Gone. I was twelve. I sat in the balcony of the Huntington and saw, for the first time, a story that challenged and affirmed what I knew about how black people fit into the cultural landscape of America. My notions of how black characters fit into American literature melted into the gilt proscenium. The Huntington has always felt like home. Working on The Luck of the Irish in that home feels just as true as those words that flew up and into me when I was twelve." — Kirsten Greenidge, Huntington Playwritting Fellow whose play The Luck of the Irish had its world premiere at the Huntington in our 2011-2012 season.
