Robey's programs provide an environment of support for creativity and growth. Each of the 2011 plays was developed through Robey's Playwrights Program, a weekly writing lab where plays are honed and developed in alliance with a trained dramaturge. Many of the actors in Robey productions develop their craft in the Advance Scene Workshop, an intensive 12-week scene study led by Robey's Artistic Director, Ben Guillory. For more information on Robey's programs, visit our Programs page.
