What is the Salon Series? In short, it is a new play development lab. The selected playwrights work on their accepted play with the artistic director and the dramaturg on generating drafts, before bringing in a group of actors for a 3-rehearsal process, which includes a critical response session. The playwright is intended to continue rewrites through the rehearsal process up until the public presentation, which is the Salon itself.

After the contract is signed, you will be asked to set up your first meeting time with the artistic director, where we will talk about your play, go over expectations for the process, and get you excited to get to work on your script!
