At the second annual Pegasus PlayLab, a festival dedicated to developing plays by emerging playwrights, you’re invited to hear three staged readings and experience a full production of a new play first introduced at Orlando Shakes’ PlayFest 2018. Follow these plays into the next stage of development and be part of the creative process with playwrights, casts and directors!
Pegasus PlayLab 2019 runs June 1-23 with a remounted production August 29 -September 1.
Visit our current season page to learn about the plays at this year's festival. Tickets for workshops are $10 and tickets for the full developmental production are $10, students; $18 seniors; and $20 standard. Purchase a Pegasus PlayLab package and see all four for $40!
What you will see on stage is the culmination of two weeks of rehearsals, script changes and discussions between the actors, playwright and director. Actors will bring the new work to life in front of the audience with scripts in-hand and minimal staging.
After the performance, discuss what you saw and heard with the playwright, director and cast. You play a crucial role in the work's development through your feedback.
This is a play that has already been through workshops and readings and is ready for a fully-staged production with a set, costumes, lighting and a full rehearsal schedule. This does not mean that this is the final version of the script. After developmental productions, the playwright will use what they saw and the feedback you give to continue to revise the script.
Play submissions are currently closed and will open for Pegasus PlayLab 2020 in fall 2019.
Submit a draft of a full-length play to firstname.lastname@example.org In a separate word document, please include:
We will select four full-length plays each year, 3 will rehearse for two weeks in collaboration with the playwright and subsequently present as workshop productions and one will be produced as a full developmental production. There is a possibility of one of the selected plays being mounted as a full production in a future season.
