Chicago Dramatists--the city's center for new play development--will be hosting a day-long conference including panel discussions, artist roundtables, guest speakers, and chances to see new work development in action.
Designed for theater makers--but open to all--we'll be engaging Chicagoland artists in all aspects of new work, from considerations in acting and directing to issues of diversity in casting and the role of the critic.
With forty years of new play development experience, Chicago Dramatists is opening its doors and resources to theater artists to start targeted conversations among us on the craft of playwriting, the support it needs, and the parts we stand to play.
The schedule of events is on our main page. Join us for the whole day or select programming.
General registration is free; select events have an admission fee.
