The Majestic Playwrights Lab is a place for playwrights to present, share, and discuss their new plays with other playwrights, actors, audience, and interested community members. The Lab is free and open to all playwrights, whether aspiring, experienced, or curious about writing for the stage. Actors and audience members are welcome and encouraged to attend, listen, and participate.
WHO: All playwrights, actors and interested audience members are encouraged to attend and participate in the readings and discussion. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. All levels of experience are welcome.
WHAT: New plays of any length, including plays under construction, scenes, and monologues will be read out loud in a conference table setting.
