The Dramatists Guild Fund will host a presentation of new work by fellows at Playwrights Horizons on September 19. The presentation features pieces by Benson, EllaRose Chary, Tim Duncheon, Greg Edwards, Ben Green, Rachel Griffin, Brandon James Gwinn, Sylvia Khoury, the Lazour brothers, Parker, Jonathan Payne, and Stacey Rose.
