Keen Playwrights Lab

Each season, the Keen Playwrights Lab brings together three mid-career playwrights to develop new full-length plays inspired by Keen Company''s mission. 

Previous participants include Brooke Berman, Jessica DickeyKenny FinkleGabe McKinleyQui Nguyen, and Kate Moira Ryan

Under the leadership of Mark Armstrong, Keen's Director of New Work, writers meet throughout the year to create new plays that provoke identification, reflection, and emotional connection. The Playwrights Lab culminates with a reading of each new play in the spring, attended by the Keen community, the theater industry, and the general public.
