Rapid Fire is a one-day workshop or roundtable discussion and analysis of a new play, involving a team of artists, actors, thinkers and other professionals of the playwright’s choice.
This year, it will be delivered via a video-conferencing facility. We’re all getting much more used to that.
This program is open specifically to culturally and linguistically diverse playwrights across the country.
In recognition of the challenges of virtual workshopping and roundtables, playwrights will receive 1.5 days of financial support. The workshops can also be broken up into 2 four-hours sessions.
After a Rapid Fire, each playwright will have the support of a PWA staff member or affiliated professional to discuss the future needs of their work and potential pathways to production.
Up to 10 plays will be selected by a panel of artists and virtual workshops will be scheduled between June and December 2020.
