The NOW Workshop Series is designed to be a step between reading and world premiere. This is an important stage of play development. We are teaming up with two playwrights from last season's NOW Reading Series and giving them the opportunity to get each play on its feet for the very first time. Additionally, each production will focus on a specific design element that is inherent to successful storytelling within each play.

Due to COVID-19, we have postponed both productions. Once it is safe, we will reschedule and you'll get to see these two new plays!

In a cabin, on a mountain, during a rain storm, Melissa wakes up to find herself zip-tied to a chair and in the company of a kind-hearted serial killer named Jack...

and he just wants a friend.

This comedy explores the outrageous things we do to not feel so lonely and the outrageous people we do it with.
