Studio Retreats

COVID-19 Update: Due to restrictions brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, this program will be on hiatus until further notice.

The Program

Studio Retreats are intensive workshop processes for writers to work with a director and creative team on self-defined developmental goals on a particular project.  Each Studio Retreat is structured based on an individual playwright’s needs, and typically includes up to 29 hours of rehearsal along with two public readings as a way to extend this process of discovery in conversation with an audience.

The Impact

This program is designed as a resource for writers to rigorously and collaboratively investigate new work in progress in a concentrated rehearsal environment, as a significant step in the development of a play.

The Selection Process

Studio Retreat projects are selected at the discretion of Lark’s artistic staff, and are typically a next step resource for works developed or generated in other Lark programs.


Studio Retreats are supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, the Axe-Houghton Foundation, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
