VAGABOND THEATRE GROUP
UP NEXT: A Southern Victory - A Trillogy, by Kevin Mullins.
Vagabond Theatre Group was founded in 2009 as an outlet for young artists to get their work into the competitive Boston theatre scene. Working for themselves, the first members of the group were able to play by their own rules.
Rather than filling a season quota, VTG selects and develops projects that it believes in, with rolling submission windows and an open door.
VTG has also developed a quarterly new-play reading series called “There Will Be Words” (often abbreviated to TWBW and pronounced tuh-WUH-buh-wuh) which showcases plays by Boston playwrights in public readings at Trident Booksellers & Café on Newbury Street in Boston. Plays are accepted through an open submission process and VTG selects plays with strong arcs that need the extra little push from audience feedback. The readings are cast, rehearsed, and performed in front of an audience, with everyone (audience, cast, etc), encouraged to discuss the show with the playwright in attendance.
