The Wisconsin Wrights New Play Development Project offers an incredible opportunity to Wisconsin playwrights as it focuses on the development of new works through residencies, intensive workshops and public readings.
Wisconsin Wrights Residency
Play submission for consideration for a Residency will be accepted on a biannual basis with our next round opening in November 2012 for consideration for workshops in May 2013. Each of the three Award Recipients will be awarded a one week residency in Madison, Wisconsin. The three plays will be featured as part of the University Theatre/UW-Madison Department of Theatre and Drama summer season with each receiving a one week workshop (with a cast, dramaturg, and director) which culminates in public readings. The Residency is scheduled for May 25-30, 2013. The 2013 Wisconsin Wrights Award Recipients are Kimberly Yarnall for "Waiting," Kristen Hammargren for "Discovering Austen," and Samuel White for "Coyote Moon." Learn more.
Wisconsin Wrights Playwriting Intensive
In even years, Wisconsin Wrights will offer a four day Playwriting Intensive focused on the craft of writing with daily feedback, reading sessions with actors, and individual tutorials. Limited to 15 participants, the Playwriting Intensive is a wonderful opportunity to expand your craft while working on a new play. The next Playwriting Intensive is scheduled for the summer of 2014.
