Greenhouse Theater Center Accepting Submissions for The Trellis Residency Initiative
Greenhouse Theater Center is pleased to announce THE TRELLIS RESIDENCY INITIATIVE, a new professional development program for young Chicago-area playwrights, devisors and creators to cultivate and present new works. Six candidates under 30 will be chosen through an open submission process to participate in a comprehensive one-month residency, culminating in a public showing at the Greenhouse. Artists will be paired with professional mentors, including some of Chicago’s most celebrated mid-career directors, playwrights and dramaturgs. They will also receive access to writing and rehearsal space, production resources, and staffing for their final presentation.
THE TRELLIS RESIDENCY INITIATIVE submissions for the 2017-18 season are currently being accepted through Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at greenhousetheatre.org/trellis. Residencies and performances will begin in September 2017.
