Kane Repertory Theatre is excited to announce Cycle 3 of The New Play Lab -- an ongoing project that is committed to helping playwrights continue the development of their new scripts.
The New Play Lab provides a virtual rehearsal room to each selected playwright, connecting them with professional actors from our ensemble and beyond. On Wednesday evenings, we will invite audiences to join us for a virtual reading of the scripts on YouTube Live. Click HERE for a schedule of upcoming plays. 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 $20 donation, or any amount that makes sense to you. Click HERE for our secure donation page.
** 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. **
