THE GREENHOUSE is a play development program at FIU Theatre supporting South Florida playwrights. Three playwrights will be selected for one-week intensive residencies in the summer to workshop/revise a draft of a full-length play. A director, a dramaturg, and age-appropriate actors will work with the playwright. The week will culminate in a public reading of the revised work.

Three scripts were selected. The author will be able to meet with the director, dramaturg, and actors for three sessions on the FIU campus over the course of the week before the final reading.
