PlayLabs Festival

PlayLabs is one of the nation’s most comprehensive new play festivals.

During the festival, playwrights partner with a team of artistic collaborators of their choosing for an extended workshop including two public readings with time for rewrites in between. The festival also features a showcase of scenes by our playwriting fellows.

Each year, we fly in a number of The Regulars partners to join in this premiere new play incubation program. These connections help move PlayLabs plays more quickly into production.

The PlayLabs festival has become a must-attend event for theater leaders across the country as well as fans near and far. And with the ability to view filmed readings online, more people than ever can experience these vibrant stories.
