Love Bytes benefit lets you shape the story

Show your love for playwrights on Friday during Love Bytes, an online fundraiser where your gift shapes the story.

On February 13, from 10 a.m. until 5:15 p.m., you'll have the chance to buy, via online donation,  your choice of story elements, from $15 words to $1,000 plot twists. You will be able to see every line and keystroke, as your elements are incorporated into plays online by five talented playwrights.

Playwright schedule (central time):

  • 10:00 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.: PHILIP DAWKINS, Core Writer
  • 11:30 a.m. - 12:45 p.m.: IDRIS GOODWIN, Core Writer
  • 1:00 p.m. - 2:15 p.m.: KAREN HARTMAN, McKnight National Residency and Commission recipient
  • 2:30 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.: JOE WAECHTER, Core Writer
  • 4:00 p.m. - 5:15 p.m.: KATE TARKER, Jerome Fellow

Then, on Monday, February 23 at 7 p.m., see the five plays you helped to create performed live at the Playwrights' Center. Tickets to the live event are $25, champagne and dessert included.

Proceeds from both Love Bytes events will benefit the Playwrights' Center and its Core Writer program, which provides new play development support to 24-27 professional playwrights from around the country for three years. Join us online on Feb. 13 and in person on Feb. 23 to help the Center continue serving as an artistic home for some of the most exciting playwrights working today.
