FROM MARTYNA: “I’m grateful for the opportunity to work on queens at the Playwrights’ Center. I’m passionate about all the characters, which are composites of people I know and grew up with, and I’m hoping to use my time in Minneapolis to discover and score the central story in this sea of varied voices and perspectives on this country and the female immigrant experience.” Read an interview with Martyna »
