Event Details

New Works Reading Series

Hosted by August Bullock

In our expanded commitment to the development of new plays, the DC Black Theatre Festival’s presents New Works Development Series by new and emerging playwrights. Established in 1986, the series originally featured concert readings, providing playwrights an opportunity to work with a creative team of theatre professionals, while also offering audiences a first look at the work and a unique insight into the playwriting process. In the summer of 2010, the DC Black Theatre Festival expanded the program, renaming it New Works Development Series.

This revamped series included workshops, productions, and concert readings. After each performance, talkbacks with members of the artistic team were held to encourage dialogue between audiences and artists. Come join us, as we continue the search for the next new voice in the American theatre canon.
