NEW PLAYS. MADE IN LA.
The Blank’s New Play Development Program embodies our commitment to developing new writers and new works. Now in its 31st year, The Living Room Series is a New Play Development program embodying The Blank’s commitment to developing new work by diverse voices from both established and emerging writers. We are firmly committed to supporting gender parity and diversity.
THE LRS EXPERIENCE
Nearly every Monday night from September to May, we produce a “workshop” staged reading of a new play with a week of rehearsals. The author is given access to experienced actors and directors who interpret the play and help the writer hone their story. New plays and playwrights are given a safe and nurturing environment where they can explore their emerging scripts and present them to an audience.
We develop and produce roughly 30 new plays each year in this program. These productions have consistently gone onto impressive venues around the world such as Manhattan Theatre Club & Transport Group (NYC), Laguna Playhouse, and Brideswell Theatre (London).
The Blank Theatre is committed to the enrichment of Hollywood’s cultural life through production of first-rate theatre, education of current and future artists, and creation of groundbreaking new works for the theatrical repertoire companies in America.
