Lost Plays: Core Development Program
PWA’s longer term development program, in which writers will spend five days developing a work, will this year focus on “Lost Plays.” Since PWA’s founding in 2007, we’ve nurtured hundreds of plays at all stages of development. Many make their way to the stage, but just as many fall by the wayside, supported only part of the way or put aside in pursuit of a new work. We’re eager to uncover these half-finished or delayed plays, in addition to the plays commissioned by theatre companies that stall once the option runs out and are still sitting in the drawer. By developing these “lost plays,” we hope to shine a light on the difficult jump from development to production while unearthing forgotten gems.
Submissions for this program will open later in 2019.
