Kid Brooklyn Productions: KB Lab Series: The goal the KB Lab Series is to offer a safe and creative developmental environment for new work. Each playwright/director will be given two weeks rehearsal, minimal technical aspects, and three to four performances if front of an audience. The goal of these performances are for the playwright to see the work fully staged in front of audience of their peers and theatregoers and use to go further in their development of the work. All performances will be free and feature a post-show discussion with the playwright, director, and members of the cast.
