Theatre Lab



 We typically begin each new calendar year with our annual New Play Festival - featuring readings of six new plays over one weekend! We’re not going to allow the current restrictions on gatherings keep us from our mission of developing new work for the American Theatre, so we’re moving the series into the virtual world.

HOWEVER, we thought six virtual readings over one weekend might feel a little overwhelming…so…we’re shaking things up a bit.

We are proud to announce our New Plays for New Year Series! In 2021, Theatre Lab will present a reading of a New Play every 21 days! 

As always, the readings will be followed by a talkback with the audience and artists about the play and the process of new play development.

Because we believe that Theatre is for everyone, we will continue our “Pay What You Can” ticketing for this series - with a suggested price per reading of $10.  

Join us on February 12th at 7pm for our next virtual reading!

February 12, 2021 at 7pm, Black Mexican by Rachel Lynett


Rachel joined us last season during our 2020 New Play Festival with her play, Last Night, commissioned by Theatre Lab as part of our FAIR PLAY INITIATIVE.

Dr. Ximena Campos is a renowned Art professor specializing in contemporary work across the African diaspora in Latin America and responsible for awarding a cash prize in a contest for art that “reflects and represents Latinidad”. When her wife, Zoe, learns that an artist had a submission removed from consideration because Ximena deemed it to be “appropriative”, Zoe confronts Ximena about her rush to judgment - specifically the assumption that a Belizean is somehow excluded from Latinidad. On the same day, Valery, a graduate student, approaches Rafa, Ximena’s colleague and Zoe’s sister, with suspicions that Ximena may not be who she claims.

If she’s right, a fraud will be righteously exposed. If she’s wrong, more than one life will be ruined. After all, what are the rules to claiming culture? And who gets to write them?

If you love new work in American theatre, now there is Theatre Lab,the professional resident company of Florida Atlantic University.

Established in 2015 on the Boca Raton campus, Theatre Lab's mission is to inspire, develop, and produce new work, audiences, and artists for the American Theatre.



To Fall In Love

To Fall In Love by Jennifer Lane
A Southeastern Premiere

New Dates TBA

Scientists claim that anyone can fall in love, simply by asking and honestly answering a specific series of 36 personal questions followed by four minutes of uninterrupted eye contact. But what if the goal is to fall in love AGAIN?  Can this exercise help Wyatt and Merryn save a marriage, splintered by tragedy? 




A season of World Premieres!


by Jennifer Blackmer,

NNPN Rolling World Premiere

It’s 1967, and 26 year old Meg Crane is an imaginative, stubborn, recovering Catholic graphic artist with a proclivity for seeing things differently – and she’s just invented the world’s first home pregnancy test.

Will Meg’s invention fall into the wrong hands? Will it disappear? Will she? Or will she persist and change the lives of millions of women?


co-created by Satya Jnani Chavez and Andrew Rosendorf

NNPN Rolling World Premiere

REFUGE follows a South Texas Rancher who finds an undocumented teenage migrant from Honduras passed out on his land, a female Latina border patrol agent who is trying to find someone lost in the desert, and the animals who are just trying to survive – as everything is illegal in the desert.

Overactive Letdown

Overactive Letdown
by Gina Montét

NNPN Rolling World Premiere

Married and in love, Christine and Mark are eagerly expecting their first child. When the birth doesn’t go as planned, Christine’s anxious mind escapes to an imaginary world crafted from the movies she loves. Maternal instincts elude her and she pulls away, losing her grip on reality as the fantasies take over. Overactive Letdown is a revealing portrayal of motherhood and an intimate unveiling of the downward spiral of post-partum depression.
