Playwrights Lab

The Antaeus Playwrights Lab


The Antaeus Playwrights Lab supports a select group of award-winning, mid-career writers as they develop the classics of the future. At weekly meetings, accomplished Antaeus Company actors bring our writers’ new pages to life. The Lab incubates new works that provide compelling roles for actors, and creates a nurturing and supportive artistic community.

New playwrights are brought into the Lab through referral; there is no application process at this time. However, we do have regular Open Houses when writers can share their work with us and actors can come play. Check our calendar for upcoming events.

The Lab Committee is:
Lab Facilitator: Emily Chase
Co-Artistic Directors: Rob Nagle, Kitty Swink
Playwrights Panel: Jeanette Farr, Alex Goldberg, Jennifer Rowland
