Description of Work:

The Department of Dramatic Art at UNC-Chapel Hill, founded in 1936, is the second oldest university theatre department in the country, with PlayMakers Repertory Company (LORT D), embedded within the Department and its faculty of scholars and artists, teachers, and practitioners. The symbiotic relationship between the Department of Dramatic Art and PlayMakers Repertory Company builds upon a more than one-hundred-year legacy. Come join us as we reimagine the legacy of that relationship and revision a future that is inclusive, de-colonized, anti-racist and driven by the passion and inspiration of our faculty, professional resident artists, students, and invested audiences.

Using expendable funding from a generous donor, the Dramaturgy Fellow, under the mentorship of PlayMakers Producing Artistic Director Vivienne Benesch and Senior Dramaturg Adam Versényi, will further strengthen the relationship between the Department of Dramatic Art (DDA) and PlayMakers Repertory Company (PRC). As PlayMakers builds on its @PLAY new work development program and seeds a New Play Festival to be launched as part of PRC’s 50th Anniversary season, the Dramaturgy Fellow will work in close coordination with the Producing Artistic Director, Associate Artistic Director, Artistic Associate, and Senior Dramaturg of PlayMakers.

Duties will include procuring, reading, and responding to new work, identifying and building relationships with writers, literary agents, and other new work makers. The Dramaturgy Fellow will ensure that PRC is seriously considering scripts from diverse groups of writers while paying particularly close attention to writers from or based in the Southeast. Alongside the artistic team, the Fellow will also help forge both internal and external conversations around all the work that PRC produces. The Dramaturgy Fellow will serve as Production Dramaturg for one PRC production per season. In close coordination with the Chair and Director of Undergraduate Production in the Department of Dramatic Art, the Dramaturgy Fellow will advise the Kenan Theatre Company (KTC), our undergraduate production arm, and its Producing Board on season selection ensuring that they are reading and seriously considering a diverse group of writers. Additional duties include but are not limited to Curation of extension and enrichment programs, events, and activities around PRC/KTC productions such as symposia, panels, and lobby displays, among others. Engagement with undergraduate and graduate students both inside and outside the classroom and rehearsal halls is encouraged. The Fellow will also mentor undergraduate dramaturgs for KTC. Time permitting, the Dramaturgy Fellow is encouraged to pursue their own passion projects within our community.

Education and Experience:

Minimum Education and Experience: High school diploma or equivalency; or demonstrated possession of the competencies necessary to perform the work.

Strong Preferred Education and Experience: The Fellow will have broad knowledge of living playwrights and the theatrical landscape in the U.S.; excellent computer, writing and communication skills; excellent attention to detail; the ability to multi-task and prioritize; and be part of the Department of Dramatic Art and PlayMakers’ active journey to being an anti-racist organization. The ideal candidate should possess an understanding of the artistic process and have excellent interpersonal, teamwork, and diplomacy skills as well as a demonstrated capacity to problem solve and engage in creative thinking.

Preferred Qualifications: The Dramaturgy Fellow will be within three years of receiving an MFA or MA degree in Dramaturgy, Performance Studies, or Theatre Studies. A broad knowledge of the international theatrical landscape is preferred, as well as an understanding of historical and institutional racism within U.S. theatre or a commitment to learn.
