Contribute to Kwame's Play Archives


In 2016, Peepal Tree Press will be publishing a collection of Kwame Dawes’ plays. In an effort to put together as accurate as possible “biography” of each of Kwame’s plays, we are reaching out to anyone who might have worked as actors, crew, or supporters of any of Kwame’s plays, or even people who might have attended these shows and kept documents or photos related to them that might be helpful.

if you were involved in any of Kwame's plays from 1980's onward- we want to hear from you!
