The New Works Lab presents bare bones developmental productions of half-hour scripted and devised plays. The program provides a simple 'fringe festival' level of technical and design support so that each work may evolve in content and structure through the final performance. Works are selected every November through an open application process. The process is supported by a weekly spring quarter class in which NWL student actors, designers, playwrights, directors, stage managers and publicists working on the productions convene with faculty and staff mentors to view and critique staged iterations of each work.
