Adelphi University Department of Theatre Presents Pia Wilson’s Generation T
Adelphi University students in the Department of Theatre worked directly with playwright Pia Wilson in creating the first full production of Generation T, a story of the lives of two Marines who recently returned from Afghanistan.
Generation T is directed by Maggie Lally, associate professor of theatre at Adelphi University. During her sabbatical she built relationships with theatres and venues that support playwrights, with the goal of bringing a new work to Adelphi for the 2013-2014 season.

Playwright Pia Wilson has received numerous recognitions for her work. She was a 2011 Heideman Award finalist for her short play, Turning the Glass Around, and was a 2012 resident with the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Workspace program. Generation T has previously been featured in the Classical Theatre of Harlem’s Future Classics reading series in June 2012.
