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.

The New Playwright Welcome kicks off 2014-2015 season by celebrating the newest members of our resident playwright company: Eric Dufault, Matthew Freeman, Aditi Brennan Kapil, Basil Kreimendahl, Matthew Paul Olmos,

The Bake-Off is a tool to help writers write a first draft quickly. Some folks have called it a method for getting out of your own way. Paula Vogel's Bake-Offs are famous for their design and ingredients... and, of course, for bringing forth many exceptional and beautiful plays.
