New Stages Festival

October 28 - November 15, 2015 in the Owen

Since its inception in 2004, New Stages has been a cornerstone of the Goodman’s efforts to develop new American plays, giving 65 plays a developmental production or staged reading. These free developmental productions provide significant resources to some of the country’s foremost contemporary playwrights—including two week of rehearsal, a design team, six public performances in repertory with a cast of professional actors and immediate audience feedback. Today, more than one third of all plays developed in New Stages have received a world premiere production at the Goodman or another leading U.S. theater.
