ABOUT ROUGH DRAFTS

Rough Drafts are week-long workshops that give theatre makers the opportunity to develop a new work for the stage. 

Writers and directors are given access to a rehearsal space, a paid team of actors or creatives and dramaturgical support. They may use the week and resources to complete a first draft of a play or they may choose to develop a script that is already complete in draft form. 

At the end of the workshop week, an audience is invited into the development process to have a sneak peek of a work in progress at the free public showing. These showings provide artists with a test audience and a platform to showcase their work to the industry. They also give audiences with an appetite for novelty access to the freshest playwriting.
