YOU BETTER WERQ
by Sarah Congress
When the Admissions Office drastically cuts the Orientation Office's funding, Yvonne and her rag tag team of wild, headstrong and quirky student workers have to scramble to make things, "werq."
Sarah Congress is so happy and honored to be a Resident Playwright at The Manhattan Repertory Theatre. She is a recent graduate from the Dramatic Writing Conservatory at SUNY Purchase College. She spent a year working as the Literary Manager for the New Jersey Repertory Theatre, before moving to NYC to pursue her playwriting career. She currently works as an Executive Assistant for Columbia University School of the Arts.
She is the co-founder of the Manhattan Repertory Theatre's Playwright's Halfway House - a free monthly lab that allows playwrights to take their drafts to production.
Her plays, Master Matthew, The Death Play...or What is Brad Doing in the Supply Room Closet?, and Portrait of Three Young People...Contemplating have had productions at Manhattan Rep. Please check out her published works online at indietheatrenow.com.
