Judson Arts’ playwright development program selects one writer or writing team each month, offering 15 hours of free rehearsal time and space, and culminating in a Loft party packed with drinks, food, and a brand-spanking-new play or thing that looks nothing like a play. The art is often raw and unready, just how we like it.

Every Third Wednesday of each month:
Doors open at 55 Washington Square South at 7pm
Free drinks and eats until the show at 7:30 pm
