Two actors hold their hands up, rubbing them together. Their faces are solemn.

In the Lab

In The Lab supports artists in developing experimental new works in a multitude of forms. Playwrights’ Center launched this development and performance project series in 2020 to meet the changing needs of artists exploring new theater pieces — and new ways of working.

The innovative program features two writers who will create, explore, test, and try, try again, as they push the boundaries of form and content. Audience members are invited into the experiment for an open rehearsal presentation followed by a conversation with the artists on the process.

The world continues to shift and churn, and so does theater-making. We’re excited to support the continued revolutionizing of theatrical storytelling.
