In four speedy years, our Audrey Residency program — 3 weeks spent working on a new-play project over the course of a year + a monthly community gathering — has become a productive, indispensable delight. 44 affiliated artists have passed through it, individually or in collaboration — nearly a quarter of our artist community. Their 28 fiercely inventive projects enter at various stages of development, and leave at various stages of development… and because this is no ordinary program, we’ve never quite found a way to provide an ordinary end-of-year culminating event. So here goes something.
Presenting the 1st
AUDREY RESIDENCY SUMMIT

and conversations based on the resident-hosted, prompt-based
community chats at the heart of each residency year
