Wednesday Night Lab Readings

Go to www.BrownPaperTickets.com or www.facebook.com/hollinsplaywrights/events/ to request the Zoom link.

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing the Wednesday night readings, which are open to the public, will be conducted via ZOOM with audio only. These readings, which are early drafts of student-written plays, are presented as part of the Playwright’s Lab course. The reading is followed by a two-tier feedback session. The first tier is based on the Liz Lerman Critical Response, with the playwright taking notes on audience reactions to things that worked, questions they feel are still unanswered, things that didn't work as well as the strengths we identified earlier, and questions that the playwright might have. The second tier of feedback is closed, and only students registered for the course and faculty attend. This session is less structured and playwrights can engage with commenters directly. In this way, students are exposed to both kinds of feedback so that they have a nurturing environment as well as preparation for the more raw responses one could encounter in a review or blog comments.

Admission: Free and open to the public.
