Director / Dramatist Exchanges

Between 2005 to 2015 DirectorsLabChicago teamed up with the Dramatists Guild of America to host Exchanges during which a select group of directors were invited to meet and mingle with a select group of writers. These Director/Dramatist Exchanges were an incubator for collaborative work in the creation of new plays and musicals. The Exchanges occurred every spring and fall at Steppenwolf Theatre or the Goodman Theater. Past Exchanges have resulted in many lasting professional relationships crucial to a successful career in the theater including readings, productions and, in one case, the formation of a theatre company.
