Research, context, validation, depth: the dramaturg’s role changes with every production. Whether it be offering insight into the playwright’s world, or clarifying the meaning of an archaic phrase, or working with a director to trim a script down to size, the dramaturg is a flexible, adaptable artist dedicated to the production’s success.
With over fifteen years of professional production dramaturgy experience, including time with some of North America’s largest classical stage institutions, our team brings valuable, incisive, in-depth research to contextualize the world of the play and lessens the burden from actors, directors, designers, and, ultimately, the audience. Whether it be pre-production preparation, in-rehearsal tablework consultancy, or performance support, the dramaturg’s task is to help raise your play to new heights.
Similarly, in an outreach capacity, the dramaturg can build physical engagement spaces for depth of context, as well as offering copywriting, talkbacks, and support throughout all modes of a production.
