pla(T)forms was a creative homage to the T and how it connects different people and communities. Bostonia Bohemia asked playwrights and writers to write short plays, monologues, or poems inspired by the T drawings of Laura Meilman. We received submissions from all over. pla(T)forms features playwrights and writers who are local to Boston, as well as from New York City, Wisconsin, Los Angeles, Maine, and London. The curator for pla(T)forms was Jaime Carrillo of Bostonia Bohemia and Fort Point Theatre Channel.
