About the Playwrights Lab
In the 2019/20 season, two new plays developed in our Lab, The Abuelas by Stephanie Alison Walker, and Eight Nights by Jennifer Maisel, were fully produced as part of our main subscription season, sponsored by a grant from the Michael J. Connell Foundation.
By programming new voices alongside our traditional classical programming, we highlight the rich sense of language and storytelling they share, while furthering our commitment to making classical theater more open and inclusive, and showcasing new plays we believe will stand the test of time.
Coronavirus Update: When we suspended activities in the theater in March 2020, weekly Playwrights Lab meetings moved to an online video conference platform, where they have continued uninterrupted. We are grateful to be able to support such meaningful work during this challenging and uncertain time.
