The Greenhouse

2021 New Plays

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

This summer’s streaming readings will be available for viewing one-time only.
