New Play Development Group
All Active, Lifetime and Senior Supporting Members of the Alumnae Theatre are invited to join the New Play Development (NPD) group.
We’re a group of women playwrights and dramaturges, at all levels of experience, who meet once a month from September through June to read and share our work, give feedback to each other, and discuss script and playwriting issues. At times we also meet in smaller, weekly groups.
Partnering with directors, dramaturges, and actors, NPD organizes 3 annual showcases of new Canadian works:
Many NPD members submit plays to New Ideas Festival, Alumnae Theatre’s juried 3-week festival of new plays held each March. Plays developed through NPD are also eligible for full production in November as part of Alumnae’s FireWorks, which features 2 to 3 new works.
