Tarell McCraney

Playwright Tarell McCraney was noted for “evoking a sense of shared community with his work as he explores the diversity of the African-American experience and the significance of ordinary people’s lives.” He is a 2013 fellow, who also works to bring theater to kids in under-served communities, especially in his hometown of Miami.
