The Next Stage

The Next Stage Festival of New Work has been presented each May at Boston Playwrights’ Theatre since 2011, until the 2020 pandemic, when it went virtual. The Next Stage brings together playwrights from our PlayLab, directors from both within our Lab program and without, and actors from all over the greater Boston area to present ten minute segments of new works-in-progress as staged readings.

See programs from previous years of our Festival!
