The Center for Fiction, a 200-year-old literary nonprofit that has created an immersive home for readers and writers in downtown Brooklyn, and Theatre Communications Group (TCG), the national organization for theatre, will co-present Sarah Ruhl and Matthew Aucoin in Conversation on November 17 at 7pm ET at The Center for Fiction, 15 Lafayette Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11217, and via livestream. Composer Matthew Aucoin and playwright Sarah Ruhl recently collaborated on an opera version of Ruhl’s acclaimed play Eurydice. They will discuss their collaboration and the process of transforming the play into a libretto, which was in Ruhl’s words, “one of distillation, with effort and grace.” This event represents the fourth collaboration between The Center and TCG, with past events featuring Jackie Sibblies Drury and Claudia Rankine; Annie Baker and Branden Jacobs-Jenkins; and Heidi Schreck and Paula Vogel. The event will then be rebroadcast as part of TCG Books’ First Fridays program on December 3, 2021, at 7pm ET.
The event will take place at The Center for Fiction, 15 Lafayette Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11217 on Wednesday, November 17, 2021 at 7pm ET. In-person tickets are $10 and include a $10 bookstore voucher, redeemable toward a copy of Eurydice. Livestream options include a $15.95 ticket with a copy of Eurydice or a suggested donation.
