PlayTime Developmental Studio

Dec 5 2011 - 10:00am -- Dec 14 2011 - 6:00pm

New Dramatists presents the 10th annual PlayTime, a 2-week developmental lab for five plays-in-progress designed to give playwrights the time and space needed to explore, workshop, rethink, and revise ambitious new work in a collaborative company of directors, actors, other writers and New Dramatists staff. PlayTime offers our writers one of the most extended, intensive developmental processes available within our year-round artistic programming. This year’s writers are Tanya Barfield, Marcus Gardley, Rob Handel, Dan LeFranc, and Chiori Miyagawa.

PlayTime will begin with two days of play readings and preparatory discussion between the five playwrights, their collaborators, and ND’s artistic staff, including resource playwright Sharon Bridgforth. A company of actors will join the lab, and the five projects will rehearse on a rotating schedule, with time off for rewrites. Surrounding the rehearsals, there will be group events – meals, yoga classes, collaboration meetings, and tea-time – to foster collaboration and exchange.
