As part of that commitment, we seek to include at least one world premiere production in each season, and work throughout the year to develop new plays through readings and workshops. Our Mabel T. Woolley Literary Department reads and reviews hundreds of scripts, looking for new plays which support our aesthetic vision and our resident acting company.
