New Perspectives Theatre Company is now accepting applications for its Women’s Work Short Play Lab. This lab provides a supportive and nurturing environment to emerging and mid-career women playwrights at NPTC’s midtown Manhattan studio.
These playwrights will work with dramaturgs and directors over a five-month period, to develop scripts for production in our annual Women’s Work Short Play Festival. Applications are being accepted from both playwrights and directors. See our website for details and how to apply. http://www.newperspectivestheatre.org/programs/womenswork
Operating since 1994, this program boasts of many playwrights whose work has gone on to full, award-winning productions. In the lab, four to six members are selected each year, along with a similar number of directors. The LAB meets monthly (Sundays) from February through June, allowing for time in between sessions for writers to continue to develop and revise their work in response to feedback. The process creates a diverse collaborative group from which members can draw inspiration and energy. NPTC is a multi-racial ensemble dedicated to using theatre as an agent for positive social change. Contact NPTW for more information: email@example.com.
