Nantucket Emerging Artists Theatre Lab

At Bennett Hall, 62 Centre Street

Nantucket Emerging Artists Theatre Lab

The Nantucket Emerging Artists Theatre Lab (NEATL) is a six-day theatre developmental lab that brings early-career playwrights, directors, and actors to Nantucket to create brand new plays on island and share this work with Nantucket audiences. 12 Artists. 120 Hours to create. 3 brand new plays. 1 audience. 

NEATL is founded by Tony Award-winner Conor Bagley and its aim is three-fold: to nourish the development of artists at the beginning of their career by giving them support and a structured occasion to hone their craft; to bond them with collaborators in theatrical fellowship; and to connect artists to audience members—theatre makers to theatre lovers—in an effort to highlight the community-building nature of live performance.

There will be two performances:

  • The first, on July 20th, will be a presentation of “rough drafts” of three 10-15 minute plays in which audience members are encouraged to give constructive feedback.
  • The second performance, on July 23rd, will present the “final products” of these three plays 72 hours later.

Artists include:
