Labbies Madhuri Shekar and Dustin Chinn Join Ars Nova’s PLAY GROUP Residency


ARS NOVA  announced the new additions to PLAY GROUP 2018, a resident playwright membership that meets twice a month to share new work and get peer feedback. Lab Members Dustin Chinn and Madhuri Shekar, along with four others, will join the 12 member group.

Play Group is a two year residency in which members become a part of the Ars Nova Resident Artist community. In addition to biweekly meetings where members share new work and receive feedback from their Play Group peers, members also receive dramaturgical support and artistic match-making advice from the Ars Nova artistic staff; invitations to Ars Nova shows, Resident Artists mixers, and to see the work of Play Group alums around the city; two Play Group writing retreats; and the opportunity to further develop and showcase one of their plays in a weeklong workshop that can culminate in a public reading. Play Group alumni include Labbies Dipika Guha and Sam Chanse.
