The Living Room Series
The LIVING ROOM SERIES is The Blank’s New Play Development Program. Since its inception in 1991, LRS has been giving artists of all levels an opportunity to grow and stretch their talents in a safe and nurturing environment.
Presented nearly every Monday night from Labor Day to Memorial Day, the Living Room Series presents new plays free to the public. These are “workshop” presentations and have a small rehearsal process.
They are not “readings” with actors getting one 2 hour rehearsal. These are “Workshops” which allow a rehearsal process and an opportunity for the playwright, director and actors to explore the material while putting it on its feet. They are simply staged, presented with “book in hand” (meaning actors carry scripts), and are a wonderful opportunity for audiences and the playwright to get a sense of the plays full presence and how it might be staged in a full production.
We have developed plays by well-established playwrights like Steven Sater (Tony Award winner for SPRING AWAKENING), Jonathan Tolins, Mark Saltzman, Michael John LaChiusa as well as hundreds of emerging playwrights.
The plays we have developed have gone onto Laguna Playhouse, Colony Theatre, Transport Group (NYC), Black Dahlia Theatre, Brideswell Theatre (London) among others.
The LIVING ROOM SERIES is also a Mainstage development tool for The Blank. Our Mainstage Productions of DICKIE & BABE, HEADS, A HOLE IN THE DARK, LES LIAISONS DANGEREUSES, AS IS, FIRST LADY SUITE, PRECIOUS SONS, STARR STRUCK, BREAKING THE CODE, CHESS, THE CRADLE WILL ROCK, GERTRUDE STEIN & A COMPANION, and ISN’T IT ROMANTIC have all come out of LRS.
