AAPG & Matthews Playhouse Premiere A House Is Not a Home

Matthews Playhouse is still going strong with its annual African American Playwrights Festival, a collaboration between The Matthews Playhouse and the African American Playwrights Group (AAPG) for which BIPOC playwrights are encouraged to submit their works to a panel of judges for selection. The play selected then goes on to be fully produced with cast and crew. This year’s winning production, A House Is Not a Home, was written by Kenyatt M.
