Golden Thread introduces 4 commissioned playwrights!
We are thrilled to commission four playwrights of Arab heritage to write new plays responding to the pandemic and the call for social justice. Join us in congratulating Hassan Abdulrazzak, Tariq Hamami, Hannah Khalil, and Mona Mansour! Each playwright is sponsored by an individual community member and will share updates about the development of the work with their sponsor. This is yet another example of Golden Thread’s commitment to our artists and to engaging the community in the creative process.
