Sanctuary hosts writing labs in Studio space every other week. These labs are a great opportunity for writers to hear their plays read aloud and listen to actors’ and audiences’ feedback.

At each Lab, 2 – 3 playwrights are invited to bring uReading...p to 30 minutes of material. This material can be from a one act, completed play, or work in progress. Our actors them perform a cold (or lukewarm!) read. The reading is followed by a mini critique using a unique and helpful structure. Playwrights are often invited back to bring other works, different parts of the play, or even the same scene after a re-write.

This intimate and warm environment is unique to Sanctuary and our playwrights have found it to be extremely helpful and fun.
