Lauren Gunderson is currently America's most-produced living playwright.  Her play Silent Sky captivated local audiences when it was produced by Forward Theater Company in 2015.  Forward is bringing Lauren back to Madison in conjunction with their November 2017 production of her prize-winning play I & You.  In this free public talk, Lauren will discuss her playwriting process and career, and her experiences as a woman writer in America.
