Event Details

Playwrights’ Week playwrights participate in an intensive seven-day retreat, designed to foster a peer-based community among the writers, their creative teams, and Lark’s staff, through a series of conversations around the work. Each new play receives ten hours of rehearsal in advance of a public staged reading, focusing on the writer’s self-stated developmental goals.
