PlayWorks, an expansion of The Pasadena Playhouse's Hothouse play development program, nurtures new works through readings, workshops and development productions, giving you a unique role in the creative process. The Pasadena Playhouse continues its nearly 100-year commitment to fostering playwrights at all stages of their careers, responding to the specific needs of their projects and giving them the opportunity to make changes in response to the audience feedback. PlayWorks development productions are not open to review in order to preserve the creative and development process of a new work in its early stage.
