PPTCO founder recovering from car accident

Hello Pittsburgh Playwrights Patrons and Supporters,

You may have heard that Monday afternoon (May 11th 2015) our founder and artistic director Mark Clayton Southers and his wife Neicy Southers were in a vehicle accident on Washington Boulevard. Mark is currently in the hospital recovering from injuries sustained from the accident, and Neicy has suffered minor bruises. The family at this time is asking that we all respect their space and allow Mark to recover so that he may return to do what he does best, continue to bring great theatre to audiences nationally.

Well wishes can be sent to the theatre at 937 Liberty Ave, 3rd floor, Pittsburgh PA 15222 and we will pass them along. Everyone at PPTCO, along with the cast and crew of Fences, wish them both a speedy recovery!

Pittsburgh Playwrights is currently running August Wilson’s Fences, directed by Mark Clayton Southers. We opened with huge success and will continue with full momentum through May 30th as previously announced. We hope to see you in the seats.
