Event Details

ESPA Drills 2017

ESPA Drills is an annual new play development program providing extensive workshopping, a public presentation , and advocacy with the theater community for four new plays written at least in part at Primary Stages ESPA.  Each July, these plays are selected from dozens of blind submissions for their ambition, voice, and energy. Over the course of two months, ESPA actors and outside guests lend their talent to these workshops and reading, which are then presented before an audience of industry peer on our Off-Broadway stage. ESPA Drills provides an exclusive opportunity for ESPA writers to receive professional attention through the resources and support of Primary Stages.

These amazing playwrights are being guided through the ESPA Drills process by playwright and ESPA faculty member Crystal Skillman, our ESPA Drills advisor.

Carl's Not Here
by Daniel Loeser

Tuesday, October 3

In a small Texas border town, Roger doesn't have much left to lose except the family bar, and now he's about to lose that. What Roger does have, though, is superpowers, and a nemesis that has arrived from a most unlikely place. Carl's Not Here is a dark comedy about a man who believes he can save the world, even if he can't save himself.

All readings are free and open to the public, and will be held at The Cherry Lane Theatre, located at 38 Commerce Street.
