NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS  FOR THE 2018/19 NEW WORKS LAB

Did you know Nashville is the playwright’s home away from home?
The Ingram New Works Project is a nationally recognized new play development program that cultivates and amplifies new voices for the stage. Since 2009, the Ingram New Works Project has supported the development of over 60 new plays for the stage. We are the playwright’s home away from home, powered by Nashville’s authentic and radical hospitality.

“NEW WORK IS THE LIFE FORCE OF EVERY ART FORM.”

Martha Ingram
Every year, Ingram Lab Playwrights develop new works for the stage alongside the Ingram New Works Fellow.
Past fellows include…

I’ve gotten more accomplished as a playwright in this last six months with Nashville Rep than I ever have before. Period.

This type of new play initiative is difficult to find and nowhere does it work as successfully as at Nashville Repertory Theatre’s Ingram New Works Lab. The Ingram New Works Lab is truly unique.
