What is the Playwrights’ GYM?

The Playwrights’ GYM is Dobama Theatre's playwrights' unit. The GYM is a program that provides local playwrights with the opportunity to workshop new work.  GYM playwrights are area professionals who are given various resources to help further their work. These resources include rehearsal space, collaboration with a director to assist the playwright, marketing, and public events supported by the theatre.  The GYM’s goal is to nurture new work in a safe environment, provide the “exercise” equipment needed to develop new plays by these Cleveland-area writers.
