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 2015 will open this summer. For any questions regarding Play Group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Play Group 2014 is: Sofia Alvarez, Liza Birkenmeier, Matthew-Lee Erlbach, Suzanne Heathcote, Meghan Kennedy, Justin Kuritzkes, Brian Otaño, Jonathan Payne, Daniel Pearle, Max Posner, Erica Saleh and Celine Song.
