    NPTC’s award-winning Women’s Work Project returns with the fruits of this year’s LAB.

    Artistic Director Melody Brooks asked new LAB members to tackle the theme of ON THE MARGIN back in February, inspired in her choice by the current social and political state of affairs in the country and the world — not the least of which is the growing inequality and continued crisis of climate change. Writers shared thoughts on what the term meant for them, and came back to the LAB with a first draft in March. Through the spring and summer they revised and refined their scripts with input from our team of LAB directors, which is a critical and UNIQUE part of the process. The resulting six plays are as unique and interesting as the playwrights themselves!

     Occupy Bronxville
    by Joan Castagnone

    Directed by Luisa Battista

    In this fast paced comedy, one young man takes his protest directly to the home of a billionaire and gets a lesson in both history and finance from an unexpected source. Is this an offer he can't refuse?

    One More Cup of Sugar  
    by Emily Daly

    Directed by Ghenet Pinderhughes

    The recipe for a successful relationship is elusive, but cake…that’s another story. This quirky play takes us inside one woman's search for emotional clarity while she works on perfecting her baking skills!

    God Don’t Exist for Girls From Brooklyn
    by Yani Peréz

    Directed by Joyia Bradley

    Global violence against girls is no surprise, but are we capable of confronting it in our own backyard? Two sisters from Brooklyn get a terrible lesson that too many girls around the world already know.

    Sweet Stuff  

    by Charlotte Colavin

    Directed by Mia Anderson

    The ties that bind are often the most restrictive, especially when it's hard to let go. Sweet Stuff calculates the cost of truly parenting a child – even when there is no blood relationship and the loss may be devastating.

    Important for Young Women!

    The Bowl  

    by Teresa Lotz

    Directed by Jenny Greeman

    We all ask the eternal questions: "Why Am I Here?" and "Where Is Here Anyway?" In this adsurdist gem, a group of disparate souls struggle to find the answers and learn that by banding together, they can move farther along.
