Started in 2011, Waterwell’s New Works Lab program commissions a complex, thematically-rich new play each year that is developed and performed by the senior class of Waterwell Drama Students as their culminating experience at the Professional Performing Arts School.

The amazing playwright of this year’s New Works Lab is Azure D. Osborne-Lee (he/they).
