The Migrant House
A staged reading of Louise Wigglesworth's new play, The Migrant House, will be presented on Monday, the 19th of March, at 7pm. This presentation is included in your Season Pass, or is just $10 at the door.
In the 1940s, many who were uprooted by war and economic stress sought refuge and employment on America's farms. Migrant House tells stories of displaced persons who spend different summers in the same workers' cottage.
Staged readings are a wonderful opportunity for audiences to see a play that is in development and to participate in providing feedback to the playwright; and they are also useful to playwrights to gauge the response they get from a live audience. Please join us from the ground up as we support our area playwrights and artists.
Lab Theater is thrilled to be working on two new initiatives this season, in addition to its other educational programming:
1. The theater is partnering with Human Trafficking Awareness Partnerships (HTAP) to work with Lee County middle and high school students on trafficking awareness through a series of scenes from stage plays, classroom activities, and lectures.
2. The theater is offering courses to LGBTQ students and allies aged 13-18 in Dramaturgy and Playwriting. The Dramaturgy course will sample theatrical works with LGBT characters, investigate family dynamics in plays, and discuss progress in the LGBT community. The Playwriting course will craft full-length plays under the guidance of award-winning playwright Louise Wigglesworth, participate in writing exercises and in peer review.
