The great IAMA Theatre Company culminates its first annual, year-long residency for emerging, Los Angeles-based playwrights under the age of 30 with a four-day virtual reading series of six new works developed in the lab. The free series runs from July 23-26, 2020. Over the course of the past year, the six writers met on a monthly basis to share and develop their work in a peer-guided format led by under 30 emerging playwright Max Wolf Friedlich. The other five playwrights in the 2019-20 lab included Laura DonneyKen GrellerMadeline HendricksNicholas Pilapil and Adriana Santos. The Under 30 Playwrights Lab is an integral building block in IAMA Theatre Company’s mission to foster young, hip and modern storytelling, something we desperately need in the theater right now. Or as soon as they open, that is.

Mentors for IAMA’s 2019-20 lab playwrights are Christopher BreyerRobert EganSasha EmersonJeff Liu, Tiffany Moon and Casey Stangl.
