A Conversation with 2024 Hermitage Greenfield Prize Winner Deepa Purohit

“A Conversation with 2024 Hermitage Greenfield Prize Winner Deepa Purohit” with Playwright & 2024 Hermitage Greenfield Prize Winner Deepa Purohit, Saturday, April 13, 3pm: While we do not often discuss it directly, there is a question we all must encounter in our lives — how does one die with dignity? This question is at the heart of this year’s Hermitage Greenfield Prize winner Deepa Purohit’s new play commission. Further complicating this personal and profound theatrical exploration is a society that values a sophisticated medical system centered on a key tenet: to prolong life. Growing up with a father who immigrated to Ohio and built his career as a surgeon in the American medical system, and a mother who spent many years at the end of her life navigating the complex system as a patient, Purohit brings deep personal connections and insight to the creation of this new work of theater. Join the Hermitage for a candid conversation with this gifted playwright at the very beginning of this work’s journey, as well as her recent Off-Broadway debut at the Atlantic Theater Company. Presented in partnership with the Greenfield Foundation, Community Foundation of Sarasota County, and Asolo Repertory Theatre.
