Every other month, the New Scripts Residency provides three scripts with considered dramaturgical support in the form of either a facilitated table read or one-on-one dramaturgy sessions with our Writer in Residence.

Playwrights who submit their script(s) for this cycle must be able to attend the Table Read in person, scheduled for Monday 28 November 2022.
How do we separate ourselves from the art we make? When it comes to writing or creating from a personal place, how might we lay bare the self while simultaneously protecting it? How might a writer/artist use vulnerability in a way that is illuminating rather than indulgent?

You're invited to the Wingfield residence.
A dingy flat in the slums of Saint Louis in the years prior to World War Two. Inside, cheap furniture, an old typewriter, a picture of a father who deserted his family long ago, and a shelf full of tiny glass animals.
