MRT is excited to work with playwrights on scripts that are still in development by providing the opportunity for writers to workshop these plays. Working on a script with actors and a director gives the playwright the opportunity to develop their writing in ways that can't happen alone in a room with a keyboard. Workshops also give MRT the chance to further develop plays that are already slated for production or those being considered for a future mainstage season.
MRT is partnering with UMass Lowell and Middlesex Community College to add another beneficiary to the workshop process: students. Students at both schools have the opportunity to witness, and in some cases, participate hands-on, in the workshop process, providing access to professional theatre artists and play development that they would otherwise not see in an academic setting.
There are no workshops currently scheduled. Watch this space for information as they are scheduled.
