The Lark Announces Lineup for Annual Playwrights’ Week

The festival, which has developed works by Dominique Morisseau and Larissa FastHorse, will feature five new works.

NEW YORK: The Lark has named five plays and playwrights to be featured in their upcoming Playwrights’ Week festival. The playwrights will participate in a week-long retreat culminating in a festival of public readings, and will build a peer-based community for professional development.

“These five plays are undeniably of this moment and I am thrilled for them to soon be in conversation with each other and the greater Lark community,” Andrea Hiebler, the Lark’s director of scouting and submissions, said in a statement. “This cohort deftly marries the personal and political in most thrilling theatrical fashion.”

The lineup will feature Bernarda’s Daughters by Diane Exavier; Park-e Laleh by Shayan Lotfi; We Built Our Homes Near Kingdoms of Animals and Magic by Omar Vélez Meléndez; The Cucuy Will Find You by Jaymes Sanchez; and Something in the Balete Tree by Ren Dara Santiago.

Playwrights’ Week, which is celebrating 26 years, will also feature a panel discussion with the writers, sponsored by Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
