Writers’ Room
Ran February 12, 2019 - May 05, 2019

The Writers’ Room is an intensive seven week writing workshop led by The New Colony Co-Founder Evan Linder (Byhalia Mississippi, The Bear Suit of Happiness, 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche).

Since its first session in January 2015, TNC’s Writers’ Room has seen over 80 new full-length plays developed with tools used in The New Colony workshop process, several of which have received their world premieres.

The students of The Writers’ Room will also have an opportunity to work with the actors and directors of Intro to TNC, cultivating the collaborative spirit between actors, playwrights, and directors that is vital to The New Colony’s work.

The Writers’ Room will meet on Sundays 10:30am-1:30pm from March 24-May 5 and will reconvene on July 14 & July 21 to share completed first drafts.

Applications Due: 11:59pm on Wednesday, March 6th.
