Essential Theater

Essential Theatre, located in our community of Atlanta's West End, hosts an annual competition for Georgia playwrights. Winning plays are produced by the theatre company. A neighborhood night makes attendance affordable for local residents. Rotary AWE supports Essential Theatre, 1) through sponsorship of the new playwright festival, 2) by hosting a post-performance reception at the annual neighborhood night performance, 3) by attending performances as a group, 4) by nominating a Rotary AWE member for the board, 5) by inviting playwrights and theatre producers to present to our club each year, and 6) by helping to promote the festival through our club's social media.
