The Sundance Institute has selected nine projects to participate in its 2014 Theatre Lab that runs from July 7-27 at the Sundance Resort in Utah.
The projects selected for the 2014 Sundance Institute Lab are:
Caught, dir TBA;
Ghost Supper (Spalding Gray, You’re Invited, Too), dir Leigh Silverman;
The Good Book, dir Lisa Peterson;
The Last Of The Little Hours, dir Annie Baker;
Posterity, dir Doug Wright;
Skeleton Crew, dir Kamilah Forbes;
So Go The Ghosts Of Mexico, Part Two, dir Lee Sunday Evans;
T., dir James MacDonald; and
Bed by Sheila Callaghan (playwright-in-residence).
The Lab supports emerging and established playwrights and directors developing new work for the stage.
“Development opportunities for independent artists are exceedingly rare and yet critical to the success of their projects and careers,” said Sundance Institute executive director Keri Putnam (pictured). “Our Lab model offers an independent-minded environment for artists to engage with their work, ask questions, build text and take risks, ultimately helping these artists achieve their unique vision,”
“This year’s Fellows bring wildly innovative stories and approaches,” said Philip Himberg, theatre programme artistic director. “It heralds an exciting and productive gathering of new talent and alumni returning ‘home’ and much that audiences can anticipate experiencing onstage soon.”
