Carolina Playmakers

Carolina Playmakers
   University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill professor Frederick H. Koch founded this group in 1918, eight years after he had set up a similar company at the University of North Dakota. Goals for the Playmakers included developing playwrights and fostering plays by Southern writers, particularly North Carolinians. Thomas Wolfe and Paul Green were among those whose new plays were staged. The Playmakers published new plays in a Carolina folk-plays series and earned the epithet "America's Folk Theatre."
   See also Folk drama.
