The Seattle Rep Writers Group gathers some of the most exciting playwrights on both a national and local level to develop ideas, to share rigorous feedback, and to showcase a catalogue of new works in Seattle Rep’s Annual New Play Festival every June. This year, the Rep Writers Group is partnering with the UW School of Drama to create collaborative workshops between playwrights, emerging young artists, and professional actors and directors to develop these works-in-progress and the artistic relationships that bring them to life.
Please join us for a mini-reading festival on February 14 as we premiere excerpts from new plays by Writers Group members Josh Beerman, Trista Baldwin, Keiko Green, Karen Hartman, Courtney Meaker, and Y York.
The readings are FREE to attend and will feature mixed casts of UW Drama students, alumni, and professional actors.
The Seattle Rep Writers Group is a forum for playwrights to challenge, encourage, and motivate each other through an extended conversation about their work. Through this program Seattle Rep aims to foster the talent of Northwest playwrights at all stages of their careers, from emerging new voices to established professionals. Each playwright is awarded a two-year residency, during which they attend bi-weekly group meetings and have access to Seattle Rep resources.
