Plays in Process is designed to aid student playwrights in the development of new work. Playwrights are given the opportunity to explore how their plays function on stage, while at the same time gaining insight into the production process. Each reading is followed by a discussion, during which the audience is invited to offre comments and constructive critcism to the playwright. Plays in Process is presented by the Drew Theatre Arts Department.

Readings take place every Wednesday at 6:30 pm (when there is no DUDS production opening) 9/5; 9/12; 9/19; 10/10; 10/24; 10/31;11/14, in the Directing Lab, Dorothy Young Arts Center. Admission is Free! All are Welcome!
