Workhaus Playwrights Collective
Productions of new works by emerging playwrights

THE PLAYWRIGHTS’ CENTER, Minneapolis, Minnesota, as fiscal sponsor for the WORKHAUS PLAYWRIGHTS COLLECTIVE, Minneapolis, Minnesota, received $15,000 in support of the production of new works by emerging playwrights.  The Playwrights’ Center champions playwrights and plays to build upon a living theater that demands new and innovative works.  The Workhaus Playwrights Collective is a group of Minneapolis-based playwrights who have curated and produced each other’s work as company-in-residence at The Playwrights’ Center since 2006.  Each three-play season is chosen by mutual consent of the nine-member collective of playwrights.  Workhaus supports the playwright’s ability to know which play is ready to produce and when.  Writers create and present plays as they envision them by taking all major aesthetic decisions into their own hands.  This entails both greater responsibility and greater artistic risk.  The goal of Workhaus is to create a culture of new work.
