Part of the process of new play development is providing the playwrights an opportunity to receive feedback from fresh eyes. For Microburst Theatre Festival, we held a post-show discussion with the cast, audience, and playwrights. We try to engage the audience in discussions about the production and the playwright's process as well.
This is the post-show discussion on November 30, 2017, illustrating the type of discussion we wanted to engage in to help the playwrights in developing their plays.
