Though you’ve taken writing workshops, rewrote your script, thought about it constantly, fretted about writing the next draft and maybe have had a casual reading or two among friends, you know to take your play to the next level of development you need to hear your words in the mouths of trained actors guided by a professional director. And in a city like Manhattan, that should be an easy thing to do, right? We’ve all discovered that it’s not as easy as we think… until now.

Running through the course of our spring semester, a group of professional actors and directors will gather each Monday from 7-10 pm to hear the work of DGI playwrights that’s either fresh off the printer or something you’ve worked on for a good while. If possible, you’ll have the opportunity to have a rehearsal prior to Lab with director and actors. We’ll hear your work in Lab and then open a moderated discussion for all to contribute their reactions and observations.

Up to fifteen writers will be chosen for the inaugural Lab. Admission to the lab is competitive among DGI students only. To be considered for the Lab, you must:

  1. Have already taken (or be taking in the Spring 2019 semester) Architecture of Plays (any of the series) and Artist as CEO.

  2. Have already taken (or be taking in the Spring 2019 semester) at least two writing workshops within the Institute.

  3. Have already taken (or be taking in the Spring 2019 semester) a Masterclass in writing and completed a Plays In Progress (PIP).

  4. Complete a Lab application.

You can make an appeal to be released from one of these requirements by writing to the moderator of the Lab and the Director of the Institute, Gary Garrison. Allowances will be made on a case-by-case basis and reliant on space in the class.
