Writer Director Lab

Presentations of the projects generated in our 2019-2021 Writer Director Lab, which is Co-Chaired by playwrights William Burke and Jackie Sibblies Drury, ran from September 24 to October 17. Next round of applications will be accepted later this year.


Instigated in 1998, the Writer Director Lab is an engine for the generation of new plays. The program—a beacon in the city for formally inventive work—supports four projects created by collaborative teams.  The Lab culminates in presentations at Soho Rep that are free and open to the public.
