Playwrights' Center Workshop

This week I have the privilege of visiting the Playwrights' Center in Minneapolis, MN as one of their Core Member Apprentices for the 2010 / 2011 season. The Core Apprentice program, in association with the Kennedy Center / American College Theatre Festival, recognizes student playwrights and provides a year-long mentorship relationship (in my case with generous Mat Smart), as well as an intensive developmental workshop. I am bringing piping hot pages of my new underwater treasure hunting play, and with Mat as dramaturge, and Brian Balcom as director, we hope to see what's under there. Developmental residencies provide an opportunity to try new things and hear fresh perspectives on your work, and with this play, I hope to uncover something of lasting value.
