Ingram New Works Lab at Tennessee Rep

Dean Poynor selected as Ingram New Works Lab Playwright-in-Residence at Tennessee Repertory Theatre

I am thrilled to be selected as a Playwright-in-Residence with the Tennessee Repertory Theatre for their 2013-2014 Ingram New Works Lab. Over the next nine months, I'll be flying down to Nashville to develop a brand new play, culminating in their New Works Festival next May.

From their website:

"The Ingram New Works Lab is intended to be an artistic home for emerging playwrights to share work, hone craft, receive direction, and springboard themselves into the next phase of their writing career, providing a fertile environment for the emergence of great new plays."

With a mission statement like that, you can bet it will be a good time! I am very excited to work with these amazingly generous and supportive people. More to come.
