Hughes and Lazzaro selected for Playwrights' Commons retreat

Alums Colleen Hughes and Emily K. Lazzaro have been selected to participate in Playwrights’ Commons’ Freedom Art Theatre Retreat in August! This dynamic duo will be joined by a number of area theatre artists (including other BU alums), in a program led by Associate Professor and Playwrights' Commons Founder Ilana Brownstein. See the full list of participants here

Congrats guys – this is terrific!


About the Retreat
Emerging Boston-area playwrights, designers, and dramaturgs, matched into creative teams together, and taken to a bucolic, peaceful, woodsy New England retreat for a week.  While there, the creative teams would be tasked with brainstorming and writing/designing/devising theatrical projects that would have been impossible to conceive of as individual artists. 

About Playwrights’ Commons
Playwrights’ Commons is a nascent playwright development (not play development) organization whose mission is to strengthen the Boston-area theatre ecology through innovative laboratories, workshops, collaborative opportunities, and fiscal sponsorships of local artists. 

Playwrights’ Commons seeks to provide dramaturgical support to writers at all stages of their careers, with a special focus on deepening the opportunities for artists who hope to put down professional roots in Boston and surrounding cities.
