An ensemble member at Chicago’s Rivendell Theatre and Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas, Slight has worked with new-play development workshops at Victory Gardens’ Ignition Festival, New Harmony Project, Phoenix Theatre, the Playwrights’ Center, and American Theater Company. Past experience also includes serving as associate artistic director at American Theater Company, artistic programs manager at Northlight Theatre, literary associate at Williamstown Theatre Festival, and literary manager at Red Eye Theater.
“The longer I stayed, the more I learned about Raven, the more I didn’t want to leave,” Slight told American Theatre about moving from interim to permanent artistic director. “It felt good to make art in a place that supports new work the way Raven does.”
