Change Lives Through Story

Up Next in the Lab

The Break Room

By Hazel Bean

It’s the Friday morning staff meeting at Brilliantine Solutions and mid-level data analyst, Tobias, has had enough. He cannot numbly slog his way through another round of meaningless TGIFs and stale meeting brownies. He knows there must be a better way and he’s ready to fight for it. What begins as an in-office uprising quickly spirals out of control. Heads will roll as Tobias and his band of rebels risk it all to change the world!

Our Mission

Spokane Playwrights Laboratory exists to help local writers create original plays. We are here to help you get your script ready to submit to local or professional theatres. Our goal is to give you, our playwright, a unique opportunity to develop your unfinished work into a fully realized rehearsal scripts ready for print or production. We provide you with time, resources, and professional expertise in an extended workshop environment. By giving you an opportunity to experiment and discover, we also give you a competitive edge.

At the end of our workshop period, we invite audiences to view your work at a staged reading. You get the benefit of direct feedback from a live audience. In this way, you will truly know if your script “works” before you submit it for consideration in local theatres. By staging your work, we foster an environment of support and meaningful/constructive creative dialogue.

We give equal consideration to all creative voices in our community.
