SELECTIONS FROM THEATRE ARTISTS OF COLOR WRITING
Playwrights & directors TBA
Wednesday, April 11, 7pm
We hosted a gathering of Theatre Artists of Color in June of 2017. The
desire to tell stories authentically came up multiple times throughout the
gathering. So we organized a writing workshop with Utah’s most produced
playwright, Julie Jensen, to be held in November and December of 2017.
Julie will teach the basics of the craft; the writers will write; we’ll craft select
pieces into an evening of short works.

THE SCRIPT-IN- HAND SERIES
Forty-two plays have received free staged readings since the launch of the
series in 2004. Now a natural extension of The Lab (our monthly meeting-
and-sharing of the work of 13 local playwrights), the Series allows us to
further explore plays under consideration for full production and test them in
front of an audience.
