Award-winning playwright Adam Bock comes to CCRI

Monday was an exciting day here at the Community College of Rhode Island. The fine arts are a point of pride at CCRI. From our classes in art, music and theater to our art gallery shows and theater productions, the arts play a big role in campus life. And on Monday night we highlighted our Theatre program.

Adam Bock, whose list of accomplishments includes two plays produced Off Broadway, being a 2012 Guggenheim grantee, a National Endowment for the Arts grantee, a three-time resident at the artist working community of Yaddo and current resident playwright at Encore Theatre, had been on campus sharing his experiences with our college community all day and Monday night we continued the conversation.

This extraordinary opportunity was made available to us thanks to the generosity of the Charles Sullivan Fund for the Arts and Humanities, a fund honoring an extraordinary man – the late, great longtime CCRI English Professor Charles Sullivan. CCRI also must thank the Performing Arts faculty and staff, especially Assistant Professor of Theatre, Luke Sutherland, for working to bring Adam to CCRI for the benefit of the CCRI community as well as the general public. The CCRI Players will perform Adam’s play, “The Receptionist,” one of his two Off Broadway productions, later this month in this very space.

CCRI alumna Linda Murphy Sutherland, began the conversation with Adam.
