NEW WORKS DEVELOPMENT
Created and curated by Director of New Works
Charlie Lee Johnson
This developmental program serves playwrights working on early drafts. OOTB casts a group of actors for a read-through with the writers. Afterwards, we discuss the script and the writers have a week to apply the edits of their choosing. Then, the same group of actors assemble to read through the edited piece followed by another discussion.
THE EDIT provides writers a chance to hear their material on actors with the benefit of a hard deadline.
BUILDING THE BOX
This new series features three new pieces that are being considered for full production in the 2020 (and beyond) seasons.
With a renewed commitment to World, American, and New York Premieres, this series is designed to give OOTB subscribers and patrons unprecedented access to the programming process, the opportunity to provide feedback to an in progress new play and get a sneak peek into what is ahead, not only from OOTB, but from some of America's most exciting new playwrights.
