Getting to know Elizabeth Dinkova: ‘I like creating a brave space’

DC Theater Arts


One of the most exciting events in the DC theater season took place last month not at a gala or a glitzy premiere but in the basement of a small church near Dupont Circle. The audience had gathered for a workshop presentation of a new play, an inauspicious event on its own, but one with great significance, because it was helmed by Elizabeth Dinkova, the incoming artistic director at Spooky Action Theater, and the face of renewed hope for a theater company whose very survival was in doubt just one year ago.
