This vibrant and eclectic group of emerging playwrights gathers twice a month at Ars Nova to share new work and get peer feedback. The group offers members the chance to develop their plays with peer support, form collaborative relationships and build a strong sense of community within Ars Nova. In addition, members receive dramaturgical support and artistic matchmaking advice from the Ars Nova artistic staff, consideration for Ars Nova’s public reading series (Out Loud) and in-house development opportunities.
The submission period for Play Group 2014 is closed. We’re now in the process of reading many plays! Finalists will be notified by December 16. For any questions regarding applications, please email email@example.com.
Play Group 2013 is: Sofia Alvarez, Sarah Burgess, Sarah Gancher, Nick Gandiello, Jake Jeppson, Stephen Karam, Brian Otaño, Daniel Pearle, Max Posner, Erica Saleh, Charise Castro Smith, A. Zell Williams and Bess Wohl.
