Putting the 'Work' back into Workshops

Facilitated by Jennifer Wise

How can we improve the workshop process so that it works better for playwrights? When and under what conditions do workshops work? When and for what reasons do they tend to fail? Are the grants given out for workshops structured in such a way that the process is sabotaged in advance by the need to rehearse for a public performance? Should there even be a public performance component in a new-play workshop? Do workshops as they are organized these days benefit actors, directors, and the producing organization, but NOT the ostensible beneficiaries of the process, the playwright and the play?

Playwright’s Prerogative: The role of the Playwright in a Production
