The Drama Book Shop is pleased to welcome the founders of The Dionysian for a launch party to celebrate the release of their second volume. The new magazine celebrating playwrights and theatre makers will launch its second issue at New York's famed theatrical book shop on Friday, March 3rd, 2017.

The Dionysian Collective, a group of actors and writers based in New York City, have created a quarterly literary journal, titled The Dionysian. The publication focuses on giving exposure to up and coming, as well as established playwrights. Each issue contains short plays submitted by playwrights across the globe, interviews with established playwrights and theatre makers, as well as pieces from a variety of visual artists that have been inspired by the plays in each issue. Having achieved great success with ISSUE 001, The Drama Book Shop is proud to host an evening with The Dionysian Collective to launch ISSUE 002, on Friday, March 3, 2017. Co-founder Alexander Hodge claims that “the evening will consist of readings from ISSUE 002, as well as an opportunity to purchase your own copy and meet the artists involved in the issue. Everyone is welcome to join The Dionysian family and help us ‘celebrate the playwright’ with food, wine, theatre and all things Dionysian.”
The Dionysian ISSUE 002 upholds the collective’s mission to “highlight emerging and established playwrights of all genres and backgrounds,” by including sixteen short plays by playwrights worldwide, as w ell as interviews with Rachel Chavkin (director of Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812), Craig Lucas (Prelude to a Kiss ,Amélie) and Crystal Skillman (Geek!, Rain and Zoe Save the World).
