The Playwright’s Lab at Hollins University is more than a traditional three-year degree program. Similar to an intensive workshop/retreat or conference, it promotes inclusivity and collaboration, not exclusivity and competition. Students work with some of the most important names in new play development. Unlike other programs, The New Works Initiative provides opportunities for the production of student work at professional theatres. The combination of intense training and professional experience gives Hollins playwriting graduates an edge in the industry.
