Event Details

About Playwrights’ Week

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.

The playwrights define their own goals for what they want to accomplish, and then spend the week together with each other and their collaborators, working to achieve those goals. Each writer has the company of six other extraordinary writers, who are there not just as a sounding board, but as a community.

Where Does Playwrights’ Week Take Place?

All readings will take place at the Lark BareBones Studio (311 W. 43rd St., 5th Floor (btw. 8th/9th).


A wait list will be started at the door thirty minutes prior to each performance. We will release tickets to the wait list five minutes before show time. The Lark has a great history of getting our wait list in. We hope to see you in attendance!
