BareBones® are simply staged public presentations of plays in the later stages of development. A BareBones® is the culmination of a comprehensive development strategy including Lark generative and/or workshop programs, and an intensive 80 to 100 hours of rehearsal in advance of six to eight public presentations, designed to foster a sense of community engagement around the rehearsal process.
BareBones® are designed as a significant resource for playwrights and their creative collaborators to replicate many of the opportunities and challenges of a production rehearsal environment, while remaining in a controlled laboratory space.
The Selection Process
BareBones® projects are selected at the discretion of Lark’s artistic staff.
