Frank Silvera Writers' Workshop
The Workshop, founded in 1973 as a memorial to the late great actor/director Frank Silvera, by playwright/director Garland Lee Thompson, with actor Morgan Freeman, actress/director Billie Allen, and journalist/critic Clayton Riley, opened its first reading and critique of a new play on October 22, 1973, at the Martinique Theatre in New York City.
There were few arenas during the beginning of the Seventies in New York and the country where new playwrights of all colors could have the opportunity to expose their new works in the positive light and showcase of an intense critical analysis, with a focus on the further development of the playwright's craft and skill.
