2022 Blaine Quarnstrom Playwright Series: Gab Reisman

USM English and theatre students will spend four days learning the ropes from this year's Playwright-in-Residence, Gab Reisman, as part of the Blaine Quarnstrom Playwright Series.

Reisman will host:

  • Two public Q&A sessions on Reisman's working methods and on industry trends;
  • Four dedicated writing workshops for students in the Departments of English and Theatre
  • A staged reading of a scene from the playwright’s work, including two new short works by USM students, for students, faculty, and staff from both programs

For the workshops, we encourage student participants of all levels with interests in creative writing for theatre to sign up. If interested in attending, please contact Dr. David Coley via email at
