thumb ASK
ASK Playwright's Lab, Kingston, NY

A unique and invaluable resource, the Lab brings together actors and writers in a safe but necessarily critical setting to try out performance scripts. The newsletter reminds and updates, and describes upcoming Lab "performances". You must participate for a while before you can have a piece read by actors. Hey, that's fair.

I LOVED my experience here.

Email Karen Rich (Tell her Greg Correll says hey!).
