Workshops and Productions

Our nationally known faculty hold workshops during the fall and spring academic semesters. Click here to learn more about our Playwriting MFA and how to apply¬†to be part of the program. Each season we produce three to five new works, alternating year-to-year between productions of our MFA playwrights’ thesis plays and productions written by our pool of alumni playwrights. From the class workshops to the productions, we employ the best of New England’s professional actors, directors, and designers to bring each playwright’s vision to its first audience.

Black Box rentals

When we are not producing our own plays, we continue our mission by renting theatre space to other New England theatre companies producing new work for the stage. (More information on this restructured program coming soon.)

Annual Events: New Noises and the Boston Theater Marathon

We produce New Noises: Massachusetts Young Playwrights’ Project festival of 10-minute plays every spring. Area high schools work with professional playwrights, directors, and actors to see student works on stage for the first time.

Fifty local theatre companies join us for the annual Boston Theater Marathon, a showcase of new 10-minute plays by New England writers chosen yearly from more than 400 entrants. Each play is produced by a different New England theatre company and produced in one 10-hour event with all net proceeds going to charity.
