PBD has been delighted by the quantity and quality of submissions since The Dramaworkshop was launched in 2014. Scripts are read by a company of resident artists, who choose a select few for development and remain involved throughout the process.
year, four plays went on to various phases of development
Jennifer Fawcett's Buried Cities,
My time at The Dramaworkshop was very positive," Fawcett says. "One of the biggest needs of a new work is time: time to write, time to workshop with actors and a director in a schedule that isn't driven by production, and time to revise. The Dramaworkshop team not only showed great faith in my work but gave me this time, and the play is all the better for it."
Jennifer Faletto's Domestic Animals will be given the next developmental production in January, 2017. All developmental productions, staged readings, and workshops take place in the Perlberg Studio Theatre, an intimate space designed and created specifically for The Dramaworkshop.
The ultimate goal of The Dramaworkshop is to produce new work for PBD and stages all over the country.
