What is PlayLab?

Maine's premiere play development laboratory!

PlayLab meets several times a year to hear the work of Maine playwrights read by rehearsed actors led by professional directors.  Playwrights may solicit feedback from the audience via online survey or mail-in questionnaire.


Playwrights Speak Up About PlayLab!

"I wanted to take a moment and thank you again for an amazing evening at PlayLab.  I so appreciate the fostering of new work that you provide with PlayLab.  It truly is an amazing group!"

"Woke up this morning feeling so grateful for the reading.  It was just incredibly well-directed and well-produced...Your PlayLab is so generous...It's wonderful to have this in Portland."
