Humana Festival Playwright Dorothy Fortenberry on 'Partners'

The 38th annual Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre of Louisville opens this week.The first production to open is “Partners” by Dorothy Fortenberry, which has its first preview Wednesday and opens Friday.Directed by Lila Neugebauer, “Partners” is the story of two best friends with big plans – opening a food truck business, starting families – but an unexpected financial windfall makes them reevaluate how they feel about their commitments.Fortenberry won the 2011 Helen Merrill Award for Emerging Playwrights, and her work has been produced and developed by Yale Repertory Theatre, Arena Stage, Geva Theatre Center and Oregon Shakespeare Festival, among others.WFPL’s Erin Keane spoke with Fortenberry about the play, adult friendships and the concept of the chosen family.
