Playwright’s elusive dream: Conquering his hometown of Miami
BY CHRISTINE DOLEN, Miami Herald 6/12/2009
Though it has only been two years since he earned his master’s degree in playwriting from the Yale School of Drama, McCraney has had his work produced in New York, Washington D.C., Seattle, New Orleans, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, London, Barcelona and Dublin.

Yet here’s the remarkable thing: Though McCraney has been artistically ignored in his hometown, he has a dream that by the time he turns 30 on Oct. 17, 2010, he will be back in Miami starting a theater company.
