Today on our Masters of the Stage – Regional Originals podcast, M Graham Smith is with Torange Yeghiazarian, Artistic Director of Golden Thread Productions. They discuss empowering playwrights to tell the stories that they want to tell, how working at Golden Thread can be a unique and often life-changing experience, and the biggest challenges of her ‘not-so-hidden-agenda’.
Golden Thread, founded in 1996, produces passionate and provocative plays from or about the Middle East that celebrate the multiplicity of its perspectives and identities. The company was awarded the American Theatre Wing’s National Theatre Company Grant in 2013 and 2016.
“People are going to say no to you more than they say yes, and that’s hard. It takes strength.” – Torange Yeghiazarian, 2018
