Plays in Process events will range In Focus, but always showcase a diverse range of extraordinary artists in the exploration of key elements in a play’s production work. Each unique session will feature a different play in development and its artists will reflect on the specific decisions that went into creating various aspects of that play. From acting choices to line rewrites to musical arrangements, audiences will get a first-hand account of just how a play collaboratively came together. In a year when we can’t be together, Seattle Rep’s Plays in Process offers the greater community a chance to virtually come back to the theater for a unique taste of what is to come at Seattle Rep.
