From Producing Artistic Director Jeremy Cohen, “These are brave plays by truly original writers. There’s a real diversity of form and genre this year, from more lyrical and experimental pieces, to comic adventures, to family dramas and beyond. But each play carries at its heart moments of intimacy and great revelation. I’m so excited to share these stories with Twin Cities new play fans and visiting artists from around the country.”

The two programs for producing new work include Playlabs and the Ruth Easton New Play Series. Eight core writers will have their work featured in free public readings. The lineup is as follows:
