PLAY LA Workshop is a program developed by HUMANITAS in 2015 to lend its support to local, Los Angeles-based playwrights. Every year, PLAY LA Workshop develops up to five new plays written by local, early to mid-career writers interested in creating stage works from the ground up. Each playwright will receive a $1,500 stipend and access to advice from theatre, film and television professionals throughout the year.
The development of these PLAY LA Workshop plays will be overseen by award-winning playwright and screenwriter Shem Bitterman, founder of PlayLab at Los Angeles’ renowned Skylight Theatre. At the end of the process, each play will be featured as a workshop reading in the HUMANITAS PLAY LA Festival Of New Works, produced in conjunction with five celebrated local theatres.
