The Dunwoody Nature Center is partnering with Found Stages to present a six-month “Wine & Reading Playwright Series” of new plays by nationally known playwrights who call Atlanta home.

This annual series will run at 2:00 PM on the Second Sunday of each month from May through October in our beautiful glass-enclosed North Woods Pavilion. Admission includes a meet-and-greet with the featured playwright at a reception with wine and refreshments before and after a reading of their play by Atlanta’s most talented professional actors.

DIVERSITY NOW! by Mark Kendall
Sunday, July 14th at 2:00pm

Play Synopsis (DIVERSITY NOW!):

Inspired by Kendall’s own recent experiences in the workplace, DIVERSITY NOW! is a live diversity seminar that ends up going incredibly wrong.


Kendall discusses the process of writing and performing his new play.  “I love solo sketch comedy, and this show is a chance for me to play with that medium. I enjoy getting the immediate feedback from a live audience.”
