Chisa Hutchinson—"Writing Towards Freedom" (Episode 58)




“It’s why I write plays now, y’all need to understand where we’re coming from and you need to understand whatever idea you have in your head of how I must be is likely wrong and I’m going to need you to adjust your expectations and adjust accordingly."

We talk with award-winning writer Chisa Hutchinson about fighting assumptions, working as Lynn Nottage’s assistant, and exploring her sense of duality in her new Audible-commissioned play Proof of Love, currently running at Minetta Lane.
