PlayLab Mission – Support New Work

Passage’s PlayLab creates and develops new work in order to advance and diversify the art-form and our collective culture, affording emerging and established playwrights a platform for sharing diverse perspectives on complex and important issues. Passage’s PlayLab has two main components: Devised Work and New Play Development.

Through our work, Passage patrons have had the opportunity to see the world premiere productions of 23 plays and counting! For a full list of the world premiere plays and workshops we have produced, Click Here

Play Readings

The development and creation of new work often requires playwrights to hear their work acted out in front of an audience. These readings, with limited rehearsals, can provide audience members with a satisfying, occasionally magical, theatrical experience. Passage artistic staff will also occasionally stage a special reading for a play and playwright under consideration for a future mainstage production.

If you are interested in being placed on our mailing list to be invited to play readings, please contact our Administrative Associate Ryan Hennessey at
