Exploring the Literature
of Theatre

Authors Theatre was created to bring dramaturgy and audience response into the creative process. Featuring staged readings of original plays-in-progress or adaptations of work from other genres, Authors Theatre is designed to focus on dramatic writing as literary text and to provide a mechanism to assist playwrights in the creation of new work.

Discussions following the readings allow the audience to interact with the playwright, actors, and director to respond to the work. This allows the playwright to receive valuable feedback on the work for the purpose of revision. In addition to assisting the playwright these discussion sessions also offer the audience a rare glimpse into the creative process as well as an opportunity to contribute to the formation of a work of art.

Authors Theatre two-way conversation transforms to private nature of reading and writing into a more public creative act.
