Downtown’s premiere program for new plays

Stay tuned for information about our next Writer/Director Lab including new Lab Chairs. Jenny Schwartz and Ken Rus Schmoll have just completed their sixth year co-chairing Lab, and have run it longer than any of their predecessors (including its founders!). Together, they transformed the Lab—in terms of how the work is made, the collaboration between participants, and the way that work made in the Lab often has a life at theaters across the country. We are grateful for their tremendous impact on the program and look forward to sharing details about the next iteration of the Lab very shortly.
