About Our Speakers



Joseph Diggs was born to a military family in Croix Chapeau, France and grew up on Cape Cod where he now lives and paints. Diggs’ work is housed in many private collections on the Cape, nationally, and internationally. Diggs earned his BFA at Southeastern Massachusetts University then returned, after years of travel and work experience, to earn his MFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design Program at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown. He is currently represented by the Berta Walker Gallery of Provincetown.



Kirsten Greenidge‘s recent work includes Feeding Beatrice: A Gothic Tale, Common Ground: Revisited and Our Daughters, Like Pillars, both of which premiered at the Huntington Theatre last spring, as well as The Luck of the IrishBaltimore, and The Greater Good. A native of Greater Boston where she has been named Boston’s Playwright Laureate, Greenidge’s plays examine the relationship between race, class, gender and history in the United States. Greenidge’s notable awards and recognitions include a Mellon Foundation/Howlround Fellowship and Residency at Boston’s Company One Theatre, a PEN/America Laura Pels Midcareer Playwright Award, A Time Warner (Sundance) Award, several Edgerton Awards for New Work, New Repertory Theatre New Voices Award, a Lucille Lortel nomination, a Big Ten/University of Iowa Commission, a Cleveland Playhouse New Play Award/Residency, an Improper Bostonian Best Playwright recognition, and a Village Voice Obie Award for Milk Like Sugar, which was also an Independent Reviewer of New England Best New Play Awardee as well as San Diego Critic’s Award Recipient. Greenidge attended Wesleyan University and The Playwrights Workshop at the University of Iowa and is Associate Professor of Theatre at Boston University’s School of Theatre, as well as Chair of Theatre Arts and co-Chair of Performance. She currently lives with her children, husband, mother, and sister Kerri Greenidge in a house the family has named Gwendolyn.
