At Local Theater Company, we don't just ask our playwrights to produce great, brilliant, extraordinary new works for the stage. We also invite our audience to be part of the writing process as well through our technology and literary-focused Co-Labs.
When you attend a Local Theater Company world premiere production or our Local Lab New Play Festival, chances are you'll also be invited to participate in a Co-Lab while you sit in the audience and wait for the production to start. During Co-Labs, audience members participate in a free-form public writing process on large video screens in the theater.
Then, afterward, we piece together and publish the finished piece written by members of our audience.
