In Conversation with Phyllis Nagy

On July 26, we had the pleasure of teaming up once again with NYU Tisch to host the wonderful screenwriter, playwright and director Phyllis Nagy for a conversation on her work and process of adapting novels for the stage and screen. Nagy, whose critically acclaimed film CAROL was adapted from a Patricia Highsmith novel, has also penned plays based on other novels by Highsmith as well as Anton Chekhov and Nathaniel Hawthorne. She gives great advice on how to honor one writer’s work while also highlighting your own.
