LCTC’s mission is to develop and produce new LGBTQ+ works and one of the best ways to do that is to provide a place where playwrights and playwrights-to-be can bring their work; to hear it read out loud; to get supportive, constructive criticism; and to brainstorm when they feel stuck.

Are you working on a play and need some honest input that your mom and your Great Aunt Trudy just can’t give you?
You should come to the workshop.

Do you have an idea that’s been bouncing around in your head that won’t let you sleep until you write it down?
You should come to the Workshop.

Do you have a script in your bottom drawer that you can’t finish and you can’t abandon? Do you want to write plays but haven’t had a great idea yet?

Come to the Workshop, already!

The Workshops are free and open to anyone who is writing or wants to write a play with an LGBTQ+ theme. In each session, four playwrights cast their plays from the assembled workshop members who will read up to 15 pages of each play. This will be the first time many of the playwrights have heard their words spoken - which is sometimes frightening, but always exciting and enlightening.

After each reading, the group will spend another 15 minutes discussing the play and giving feedback. The core principle of feedback in the Playwriting Workshops is that it should be honest, respectful and constructive. Ideally, each playwright will leave the session with a much clearer idea of what works in their script and what doesn’t along with some thoughts on how to proceed.
