Francis Weiss Rabkin has been selected as a playwright in the NYTW 2050 Fellowship program. From NYTW: "The 2050 Fellowship is a yearlong residency for emerging playwrights and directors. The 2050 Fellowship provides a space for experimentation, artistic and administrative support, and mentorship. The 2050 Fellows are emerging artists who, with their unique voices, give us perspective on the world in which we live; and who challenge us all to contend with this changing world."
The six fellows, 3 playwrights and 3 directors, will meet monthly for a year with guest artists and mentors and have the opportunity to present work in development twice. Weiss Rabkin will work with Tina Satter, Artistic Director of Half Straddle, as a mentor. The 2016-2017 Fellows include Ming Peiffer, Stevie Walker-Webb, Danny Sharron, Mo Zhou, and Beto O'Byrne.
