2019-2020 UNDER CONSTRUCTION PLAYWRIGHTS GROUP:
Lisa Kenner Grissom
Velina Hasu Houston
UNDER CONSTRUCTION at THE ROAD:
In 2019 Carlyle King, Jessica Broutt, and Carlos Lacámara brought together a group of eleven playwrights, both emerging and established writers, 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.
THE ROAD THEATRE COMPANY:
Located in the heart of the NoHo Arts district-the fastest growing arts district in Los Angeles County. Fiercely committed to that most dangerous of theater missions-the dedication to new works-The Road Theatre Company led by founding artistic director Taylor Gilbert and artistic director Sam Anderson, is a multi-award-winning theater that has been named one of the top ten intimate theater companies in Los Angeles (LA Weekly).

UNDER CONSTRUCTION 2 SUBMISSION INFO
The Road is proud to begin its second year of Under Construction, a playwright’s group that develops socially and politically relevant voices and thoughts to the American stage. Under Construction will be meeting virtually in 2021, and is open to playwrights on a national level. We will be selecting 10 playwrights to join the 2021 cohort.
Beginning in January, this group will meet twice a month on Wednesday evenings. Each playwright must enter this group with the beginnings of a new play, and we will work collaboratively for 1 year on the development of each play. 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.
The goal of Under Construction is simple: to leave with a deeper knowledge of playwriting through collaborating and sharing with one’s peers, and for each participant to create a new piece that is workshop ready. Initial drafts will be read by fellow playwrights, but participants in this program will also have access to The Road’s ensemble of theatre artists for private readings, as well as support from the Artistic Team at The Road.
Please let us know if you would like to apply for Under Construction at The Road, by giving us a 25 page sample of your work and a pitch for the next play you’d like to work on. Please send submissions to email@example.com We look forward to hearing from you! Deadline is November 15, 2020.
