Kane Repertory Theatre is excited to introduce The New Play Lab -- an ongoing project that is committed to helping playwrights continue the development of their new scripts. We’ve already received over one hundred submissions from playwrights across the country. We’ve selected four initial scripts that we believe will help shape the theatre of tomorrow.
Starting May 26th, we will be opening our virtual rehearsal room to these playwrights, connecting them with professional actors from our ensemble and beyond. Each Wednesday at 7:30pm (CST), we will invite audiences to join us for a virtual reading of the scripts on YouTube Live. You, the audience, will get a unique and exciting firsthand look at the development of these works. You can also become an integral part in the creative process by joining us for post-read discussion, sharing your questions, thoughts, and impressions with the team.
Our live streams are free of charge. You can help support this work and the artists involved by considering a donation of $20, or any amount that makes sense to you.
** These scripts are all works in-progress. Some scripts are earlier in the development process than others. All playwrights reserve the rights to their work, and any recording of these live virtual readings is prohibited.
