About our Metamorphosis Productions

Each year, we invite some of the finest contemporary playwrights to develop their work in our home. These residencies give writers the opportunity to make their scripts production-ready with the help of actors and a director. Witness the transformation from first read-through to final performance and influence the work of these playwrights through your feedback.
