Tony winner Lisa Kron (“Fun Home”) is scheduled to interview three playwrights as a part of the Whiting Foundation’s Brooklyn Book Festival event, “Writing for a Live Audience.”

This conversation is free to attend and open to the public, and will feature playwrights Lucas Hnath (“The Christians,” currently running at Playwrights Horizons), Anne Washburn (“Mr. Burns”; “Iphigenia in Aulis,” currently running at Classic Stage Company), and Virginia Grise (“blu”). All will be speaking about what makes characters come to life on stage. And since we’re in the business of characters and life and bringing it, Backstage readers have a great way to spend their Sunday afternoon.

The Q&A will take place Sunday, Sept. 20 at 3 p.m. on Columbus Park’s main stage.
