Mountain Valley Playwrights Lab

Mountain Valley Playwrights Lab

The MVPL will be meeting one Friday a month in the basement lounge of the Fair Street Reformed Church in Kingston.

Playwrights, actors, theatre buffs and directors are welcome. Each lab will feature 2-3 short dramatic works in progress. The purpose is to provide writers with constructive, supportive feedback on charactor development, pacing, arc, conflict, payoff and dialogue. In addition, attendees can make corrections and explore future collaborations.

No fee is charged, however, a hat will be passed for donations to defray expenses.

Parking available on site.
Light refreshments.
Actors will be on book.
No rehearsals.

To perform, submit a script, or be added to the mailing list, please contact Karen Rich at
