The Ruskin Group Theatre playlab was established, in conjunction with University of California faculty and alumni, as a setting for playwrights to develop new work in a supportive, professional environment. Each playwright moves through a sequence of developing a first draft, followed by a schedule of concert readings by Ruskin Group Theatre actors, and further revisions based on the readings. The RGT then has a first-look right to produce the premiere of any new play developed in the lab. If a play is not selected for production, there is no further mutual obligation and the playwrights are free to submit their work elsewhere.
