For 36 years, the Playwrights’ Center’s PlayLabs Festival has been one of the nation’s most comprehensive play development programs. Playwrights receive 30 hours of workshop time with a team of collaborators (including designers) and two public readings with time for rewrites in between. Over 70% of the plays featured in PlayLabs over the past decade have gone on to production, and the festival has become a must-attend event for theater leaders and fans both locally and from around the country. We hope you can join us for this year’s festival!
