Made Local

Matt Schatz

Register

Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures presents a special Made Local event with City Theatre playwright Matt Schatz at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. Schatz is writer and a composer, and winner of the 2012 Kleban Prize in Musical Theatre for Love Trapezoid. A discussion of Schatz’s work and process will be followed by a Q&A.

Matt Schatz’s play The Burdens will be on stage at City Theatre, in the South Side from April 6 – May 12, 2019.

Siblings Mordy and Jane communicate like proper millennials: primarily through text message and loaded with sarcasm. Their lives flailing on opposite coasts, they hatch an outrageous plan to relieve their mother of the burden of Zad-Zad, their centenarian – and particularly prickly – grandfather. A world premiere dark comedy for the digital age, The Burdens explores pop culture, connection, and the value of actual face time.
