New Dramatists presents the 13th annual PlayTime, a 2-week laboratory retreat for five plays-in-progress designed to give playwrights the opportunity to explore, workshop, rethink, and revise ambitious new works of theatre by drawing from a supportive company of collaborators, including actors, directors, process facilitators, dramaturgs, stage managers, staff, fellow playwrights, among others. The round-the-clock schedule offers intensive and flexible time for rehearsal, rewrites, feedback, and community engagement. PlayTime has helped bring close to fifty plays to fruition since 2001.
