Community Centered New Works & The Playwrights Initiative

PlaywrightsEndstation has a firm belief that for theatre to be relevant it must be localized and it must speak directly to the community it serves. As part of their Community Centered New Works Program, Endstation commissions or devises new work that directly addresses the history, life, and future of the community of Central Virginia in which the theatre operates. This program ties Endstation to the community that it serves, and has been the source of some of its most successful and compelling productions such as The Bluest Water: A Hurricane Camille Story (2008, 2009), My Brother’s Knife (2009), Cry of the Mountain (2011), Unearthed (2013), In Sweet Remembrance and Counter/Top. (2015)

A Central Virginia retreat

Endstation’s Playwrights Initiative invites three playwrights to join us during Endstation’s summer season to write, workshop, and develop new plays. This program promotes the work of the next generation of playwright by providing a laboratory for young playwrights to write and rework their plays in a supportive atmosphere, and with access to other theatre artists.
