THE NEW PLAY LAB
Quinnipiac students are invited to submit original ten-minute plays for inclusion in our New Play Lab! 6-8 selected plays will receive workshop productions at the Theatre Arts Center each April. Selected playwrights will be assigned a professional mentor who will offer critical feedback on the script and serve as a guide throughout the production process. Additional opportunities for student directors, actors, and stage mangers!
10 minutes in length (plays over ten minutes will not be considered)
Plays may be written in any genre. (There is no restriction on setting or theme)
