A Play of One’s Own
Laura Korach Howell will perform A Play of One’s Own on Thursday, April 9, at 8 p.m., at the Philadelphia Alumni Writers House.

Howell is an equity actor, director and playwright, as well as a faculty member at The Fulton Academy.
Her one-woman show, Shakespeare’s World, Women & Significant Others, was accepted to be part of the Pennsylvania Humanities Council’s Commonwealth Speaker program.
