Centre Stage Podcast #11- With Sharon Wallace

06 Feb 2022 7:11 AM | Anonymous
Sharon Wallace is a past President of ICWP, The International Centre for Women Playwrights. She reads from her play 1967: A Life of its Own.

" I was inspired to write the play from a short story based on a personal reflection from my childhood memory of the 1967 Riot in Detroit, Michigan. 

I decided to build characters within the riot setting and develop a story within the conflict of the riot.

My first experience with playwriting began as an adolescent adapting a story to a play.

Many years later, studying acting at the National Black Theatre in Harlem, New York, I got into playwriting. I collaborated with my fellow actors to write a play titled "Ouch Outrageous Love."

However, years later, I committed to the genre of playwriting when I completed my first play, 1967: A Life of its Own, as the creative component of a master's degree. "
