Visiting Director’s Project

The HRDC is pleased to announce that the 2016 Visiting Director’s Project on the Loeb Mainstage will be directed by JACQUI PARKER, a playwright, director, and Elliot Norton Award-winning actor, and a six-time recipient of the Independent Reviewers of New England (IRNE) Award, as well as a recipient of the 2004 Boston Theatre Hero Award given by StageSource. In addition to being a 2007-09 Huntington Playwriting Fellow, she is the Artistic Director of the Our Place Theatre Project and the founder of Boston’s annual African American Theatre Festival. Her play Dark As A Thousand Midnights won an IRNE Award for Best Play. Her play Jeanie Don’t Sing No Mo’ was read as part of the Huntington’s 2009 Breaking Ground Festival of New Work. We’re so excited to have Jacqui leading our 2016 VDP!
