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. 

Under the leadership of Jeremy Stoller, 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 December, attended by the Keen community, the theater industry, and the general public. 

The Keen Playwrights Lab is produced with the generous support of the Dramatist Guild Fund.
