We are excited to share with you the World Premiere of Ich Bin Ein Berliner by Vanessa Garcia, a fully-produced audio play, commissioned by and written for Theatre Lab. 

You can catch the production Christine Dolen called "... funny, thought-provoking, and deeply moving..." from the comfort of your home.

Ich Bin Ein Berliner




This memory play in audio form is the true story of playwright Vanessa Garcia’s deep-dive into why the fall of the Berlin Wall was seared into her soul, as she watched it come crashing down on TV, from her fifth-grade classroom in the magic city of Miami.

Led by the undeniable pull of her own Cuban roots, she re-traces her relationships to pop-culture, Capitalism, Berlin, and her familial history, revealing the true interconnectivity of the world and the urgent need to share that truth - as Cuba itself dreams of a future unimaginable for the past six decades.

 Fair Play Initiative Call for Submissions

The Fair Play Initiative returns!

Theatre Lab, the professional resident company of Florida Atlantic University (FAU), is now accepting applications for The 2021 Fair Play Initiative: a commission and development program for LGBTQ+ playwrights.  With support from Our Fund Foundation, The Fair Play Initiative will provide commissions for two new audio plays by LGBTQ+ playwrights along with a week-long development process during the summer of 2021, culminating in a publicly presented staged reading. 


Theatre Lab invites interested playwrights, who identify as LGBTQ+, to submit proposals for a commissioned 45-55 minute audio play.  Submissions must be received by 11:59pm on May 16.  Interested playwrights should email a bio (150 words or less), a brief summary of their proposed play (200 words or less), and 3 pages of sample work to theatrelab@fau.edu using the subject line: 2021 FPI Audio APP.

Selected playwrights will receive an initial stipend of $1000 to begin work with an additional $1000 payable upon completion of the public reading during June of 2021.  

The plays will then be scheduled for a week-long development process, receiving no less than 18 hours of rehearsal & development before a reading for an audience.  The playwright will be present (either virtually or in-person) for the entire rehearsal process, the reading, and take part in a post-show discussion with the audience about the play and the process. 

Following these development sessions, at least one of the plays will be fully-produced and presented as a “Theatre Lab Digital Production” by October of 2021.

Although not a requirement, Theatre Lab is particularly interested in stories based on or inspired by important events in LGBTQ history. Playwrights who reside in Florida - particularly those in South Florida - are strongly encouraged to submit. If you have any questions please email theatrelab@fau.edu.  No phone calls please.
