FireWorks, a 4-week program for playwrights


Deadline: June 30, 2023


Pale Fire Theater is excited to announce FireWorks, a 4-week program for playwrights to develop and specify their plays. We'll provide you with the resources to explore your play on its feet, not just as words on a page or thoughts in your head.

The resources we offer:
  • 8 hours of rehearsal space a week
  • A cast of actors, suited to your play's character breakdown
  • A director from the Pale Fire Team, who’ll work with you to create a workshop process suited to your goals
  • $200 stipend
The workshop will culminate in a final reading/performance open to the public.

Note that this is a pilot run of FireWorks – it's our first time organizing it and we're going to learn along with you. Aside from the resources listed above, there will be ample flexibility for you to inform how the program would most benefit you. Join us this fall to breathe life into this new play development program.

Application Requirements
