Script Lab

Writers who want their plays reviewed by industry professionals may submit their work for Script Lab. This formalized script review process is a fantastic way to get feedback on your work from experts in the field, as you take your play to the next level. Our pool of readers includes our Resident Playwrights and Associate Artists, including a wide array of directors, dramaturgs, and other leaders of the Chicago Theater industry.

Notes will be given based on genre, story, plot, dialogue, story-world, and more. Writers may also personalize the questions they would like answered in regards to their specific play. These personalized critiques are a wonderful way to get specialized, focused feedback on any play you’re currently working on.

Network Members receive 1 free Script Lab per year with their membership. For additional Script Labs, Network Members are charged $250 per lab (at a 17% discount).

Members of the General public may purchase a Script Lab for $300.
