IAMA Theatre Company culminates its first annual, year-long residency for emerging Los Angeles-based playwrights under the age of 30 with a four-day virtual reading series of six new works developed in the lab.
The celebration, “Under 30 Playwrights Lab Virtual Series,” will honor the playwrights’ journeys over the past year. The six writers met on a monthly basis to share and develop their work in a peer-guided format led by under 30 emerging playwright Max Wolf Friedlich. The five playwrights who were chosen for the 2019-2020 lab include Laura Donney, Ken Greller, Madeline Hendricks, Nicholas Pilapil and Adriana Santos.
“As we continue to pivot and reinvent during this time, we are so thrilled to be able to present the work of our inaugural class of writers on a virtual platform to only the L.A. theater community, but also to the larger global community,” said Stefanie Black, IAMA Theatre Company co-artistic director. “It has been an honor to spend the last year witnessing the growth of these incredible writers.”
The series begins today at 6 p.m. with a reading of “The Bottoming Process” by Pilapil. Each day, a different member of the lab will read his or her work, and each viewing is free.
