Dobama Theatre presents a reading by Playwrights' GYM member Dr. Mary E. Weems:
Socks: a Play About Sex Trafficking
What happens when an eight year-old Black girl is snatched in Cleveland and sold to the highest bidder?
The Playwrights' GYM is Dobama Theatre's professional playwriting unit. GYM playwrights are given various resources to help further their work. These resources include rehearsal space, collaboration with a director to assist the playwright, marketing, and public events supported by the theater. The GYM's goal is to nurture new work in a safe environment and provide the "exercise" equipment needed to develop new plays by these Cleveland-area writers.
