The Salon

You're invited to The Salon, a twice-monthly gathering of playwrights, directors, and actors that helps to shape theatrical works-in-progress. 

Curated by Pipeline-Collective’s Producing Artistic Directors David Ian Lee and Karen Sternberg, along with Studio Tenn's Interim Artistic Director Benji Kern, The Salon combines Studio Tenn's mission to support the development of new work and local artists with Pipeline-Collective’s mission to empower theatremakers to tell their stories. Each three-hour session is designed to not only benefit playwrights, but to bring together all collaborators in a crucible of time and creativity, exploring new relationships and furthering the development of new, visceral theatrical work.

At The Salon, playwrights can maintain the momentum of their writing and hear pages aloud at regular intervals – a critical component of new play development – while directors and actors can work “on their feet,” investigating new texts and partnerships in a model more accommodating than the constraints of an audition or the product-based needs of a rehearsal hall.

The Salon is a free program and is welcoming of artists from all backgrounds. Join us!
