Robert Schenkkan

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan is busy these days. The film Hacksaw Ridge, co-written by Schenkkan and directed by Mel Gibson, has been nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor. The Great Society, the follow-up to the Tony Award-winning All the Way about President Lyndon Baines Johnson’s time in the White House, is currently enjoying its Texas premiere in a production at the Zach Theatre in Austin. And Schenkkan has his hands in multiple ongoing projects, both in film and theatre. We caught up with him recently to learn more about his work and creative process.
