Contemporary Drama Working Group

Image of Contemporary Drama Working Group Working Group

The Contemporary Drama working group aims to provide a forum for broad-ranging discussions of contemporary theater practice and the development of cutting-edge new plays. The Group hosts regular meetings of students and faculty interested in emerging trends in performance and will also present - in collaboration with the Department of Theater, Dance & Performance Studies - a public series of at least eight new-play readings over the course of the school year. By soliciting plays from Berkeley writers and others in the broader Bay Area theater community for inclusion in this reading series, the Group aims to forge connections between performance theoreticians and theater practitioners, aid in the dramaturgical development of important new work, and provide a space in which up-and-coming voices in American theater can be heard.
