» Play LA


PLAY LA  works with HUMANITAS to support Southern California playwrights.

HUMANITAS has for years given budding television writers a leg up through its New Voices mentorship initiative and most recently lends its support to locally based playwrights through PLAY LA, a new program since 2015.

PLAY LA Workshop will develop up to five new plays written by local early- to mid-career writers interested in creating stage works from the ground up. Each playwright will receive a $1,500 stipend and access to advice from theatre, film and television professionals throughout the year.

The development of these PLAY LA Workshop plays will be overseen by award-winning playwright and screenwriter Shem Bitterman, founder of PlayLab at Los Angeles’ renowned Skylight Theatre. One play will be featured as a workshop reading in the new, year-end PLAY LA weekend celebration of new plays at the Kirk Douglas Theatre.
