Playwright Donald Margulies is coming to South Coast Repertory (SCR) for the 20th Anniversary production of Sight Unseen, which had its world premiere here and was considered his breakthrough play.  Donald went on to write three more plays for SCR (Collected Stories, Shipwrecked! and Brooklyn Boy) and to win the Pulitzer Prize for Dinner With Friends, which had its West Coast premiere at SCR.

Bill Brochtrup and Kandis Chappell in
Noises Off.
Donald will make a guest appearance at Chapman University the day after opening night when he will speak about writing for theatre, television and film. SCR favorites Kandis Chappell and Bill Brochtrup will read scenes from Collected Stories, Sight Unseen and Dinner with Friends.

During his last appearance at Chapman, Donald spoke to a packed house before the world premiere of Brooklyn Boy, which went on to productions on Broadway and at the Comedie des Champs-Elysees in Paris. Since then, his play Time Stands Still had a Broadway run in 2010, and his teleplay of Jeffrey Eugenides’ Middlesex is scheduled to air on HBO.

So grab a friend and hightail it over to Chapman on Saturday, March 17. The event is free and it begins at 3 p.m. (and will be over in time for your St. Patrick’s Day festivities) at Chapman University’s Leatherby Library.
