2017-18 Season 15

6th Annual Hothouse New Play Development Series

September 2018, March and June 2019

Our commitment to new plays continues through the Hothouse – which gives local playwrights a chance to respond to the season with short works, and fosters the growth and development of new plays over longer periods of time. Currently, we are working with artists including Psalmayene 24 (director of Word Becomes Flesh) on new full-length plays, with production potential in future seasons.

Hothouse: Short Plays, Big Conversations

New 10-minute plays by DC-area playwrights, inspired by, and in conversation with, our main-stage productions: The Events, Blood at the Root, and Klytmnestra.

Hothouse: Full-Length Plays, Full Throttle Development

Thanks to the generous support of The Revada Foundation, Theater Alliance is taking an active role in fostering the DC region as a hotbed for new plays from varied voices and perspectives. Over the course of Season 16, we will be working on several full-length plays that will receive public readings at dates to be announced.
