Road Theatre Company Presents First Presentation Of UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Road Theatre Company Presents First Presentation Of UNDER CONSTRUCTION

THE ROAD THEATRE COMPANY and Taylor Gilbert, Founder/Artistic Director together with Sam Anderson, Artistic Director, remain committed to their meaningful mission to produce and develop New Work for the Stage. This was the final step. Develop plays from the bottom up! With Carlyle King, Jessica Broutt and Carlos LaCamara, the dream was hatched.

A group of eleven playwrights, both emerging and established writers, agreed to meet bimonthly to create and workshop new plays. They called it UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

Each playwright entered the group with the beginnings of a new play. The work would be developed collaboratively. This program is modeled for playwrights who would benefit from a structured space to receive feedback from peers, all in the supportive environment of The Road.

This group furthers The Road's mission to develop socially and politically relevant voices and thoughts to the American stage, as well as continues to establish our company as a leader and champion of new work in Los Angeles.

Closed captioning will be provided for the readings and talkbacks.
