When COVID-19 hit, Proudly Asian Theatre (PAT) had to find a way around the traditional model of workshopping and redevelopment. Fresh Developments was their answer.
Prior to COVID-19, PAT hosted monthly readings of new plays from Auckland playwrights through their Fresh off the Page series. Fresh Developments features four previous Fresh off the Page writers and takes them to the next level! This new development programme is taking shape through online content such as essays, interviews, and comics about the writers’ new plays. These pieces provide an inside look into each writer’s journey of redeveloping their work.
We’re featuring a piece from each of the four playwrights, with more to come on the PAT website throughout 2021. Click through below to view their essays, comics, artwork, and video:
