What is the GOOD Works Project?
The GOOD Works Project provides an avenue for new, emerging writers to have their voices heard in today’s world of theater. The festival provides an awesome platform for exposure and constructive feedback.
Why is the GOOD Works Project so important?
It gives New playwrights an outlet, for presenting fresh and innovative works. Provides exposure for everyone involved in the process. Supports the arts & theatre in our society, and allows opportunity for new scenic designers, light designers, and actors in the Atlanta area to work together.
How does the GOOD Works Project work?
Six new plays are selected by our team. We then produce six productions, in the heart of Atlanta's theatre scene. Talent/Literary agents, Directors, and Casting professionals are invited to the performances. Chosen plays will have the opportunity to be produced internationally.
The Directors will work closely with the writers. After performances there will be talk backs to give the playwrights feedback and to help them discover new possibilities.
