The Soho Rep’s Writer/Director Lab, now a decade strong, is in the midst of their 2008 reading series featuring six hand-selected playwrights and their director cohorts. Here’s your chance to see the future of American Theatre for the low, low price of free. In the past, the Lab has nurtured such writers as Melissa James Gibson, Anne Washburn, Brooke Berman, Sheila Callaghan, Adam Bock, and Jason Grote. They even took in the likes of me. Twice. (I was held back a year)
I’m particularly looking forward to Madeleine George’s Precious Little (April 28) and Deron Bos’ Putting the Days to Bed (May 11). But you can be sure that for the next several weeks, you’ll be treated to a writer you can one day brag about being into way before anyone else did. What a glorious day that will be. They’ll all look like posers jumping on the bandwagon and you’ll finally be cool. And you’ll owe it all to Soho Rep.
