Playwrights Workshop

Your ideas from page to stage!

May 18-23, 2020

CCM's Playwright's Workshop is open to playwrights of all experience levels. Participants will write, take master classes with industry professionals and attend readings of their works. The workshop culminates with a public presentation, where CCM actors will present a staged reading of excerpts from each playwrights' work.

Those who have a script that they’d like to workshop while they are with us will have a ten-minute section of their play read for an audience at the end of the conference. Those who are just beginning to explore playwriting will write a ten-minute play while they’re here, and that play will be read for an audience at the culminating performance.



During your week with us, you'll:
  • Have exclusive access to our resident dramaturg, Lisa Timmell, director of new work at the Tony award-winning Huntington Theatre Company in Boston
  • Witness the play development process with internationally known playwrights
  • Participate in master classes taught by renowned theatre professionals
  • Write every day and hear your work read aloud by our resident actors.
  • Hear your work as part of our Participants' Showcase at the close of the conference.
