In February 2023, each new play will have the chance to be read aloud with actors, a dedicated director, and a line producer in a virtual table read as the first step of development.
The virtual table read is designed to open the piece for the first time to an audience reaction, begin to till the proverbial soil of the play, and create space for growth and exploration as the playwright is able to hear the pages aloud for the first time and benefit from the structured feedback.
29 Hour Reading
Using the AEA 29-Hour Reading model, each new play will be read in front of an invited audience as the second step of the development process in spring 2023.
The readings will receive production casting assistance, dedicated rehearsal space, a director, stage manager, and line producer to help shape this part of the Incubator process. Round 2 is an important step in the development process, as it allows for the playwright to see and hear their material in front of a curated audience, providing further opportunity for feedback and potential industry partnerships for production development in
Fully Staged Workshop
Under AEA Showcase Code*, each new play will receive a dedicated weekend of workshop performances in July 2023 in New York City.
These workshops will be as fully staged and produced as possible - lights, set, costumes, design teams, etc.
We want our Incubator artists to see their work fully staged and ready for audience engagement.
These will be ticketed performances running Thursday night through Sunday matinee, a total of 5 performances per show. Industry invitations are curated by our Executive Producers and line producers, and professional production photos are provided.
*if there are no union members in the cast, this will not be under a showcase code; however, production will still follow showcase rules.
