Winners of the 2015 Playwright’s Promise Award @ Hollywood Finge Festival

The Inkwell Theater Development LAB was excited to present the first Playwright’s Promise Award at the 2015 Hollywood Fringe Festival. The Playwright’s Promise Award recognizes the writer of a Fringe production.The playwright of the winning production is guaranteed a staged reading of their NEXT play, which will be cast, rehearsed and produced by The Inkwell Theater in the following season.

The Inkwell Theater Development LAB

A unique program in Los Angeles, The Lab aims to bring the writer out of their office, or coffee shop, and into the rehearsal room. We believe that nothing benefits works-in-progress more than artistic collaboration, and are focused on developing new plays through a collaborative workshop process. We believe that by working in a rehearsal setting with a director and actors, a playwright can best further their play. During a six-week intensive process, writers will not only see and hear their original draft, but will see their re-writes, changes, and inspired ideas come to life. After all that work is accomplished, the play will be presented as a reading for leaders in the theatre community as well as our fellow artists and dedicated supporters.

 

Our watchwords are the lessons of Max K. Lerner, the namesake of our Fellowship:
Don't focus on the negative.
Go forward, not backward.
Keep your sense of humor.

Be a mentor.

M-Theory: a play told in 11 dimensions

By Jami Brandli
Directed by Diana Wyenn

 

Featuring:
Brenda Varda, Kristy Johnson, & Reena Dutt

Produced by Daniel Shoenman, Bonnie Hallman & Annie McVey

"Former biographer Pauline Grey has shut herself and her daughter Ava away in a remote Pennsylvania cabin for nearly a year. Pauline will not let Ava go until she has the answers she is desperately seeking. But when a solar flare storm hits, cutting the women off from communication with the outside world, and a downed pilot appears at the cabin asking for help, Pauline's reality is challenged in more ways than one.”
