Artist Statement

Fresh Ink Theatre is a company dedicated to the development of new work on the Boston small theatre scene in a collaborative, playwright-centered manner. The company was born in the summer of 2011 and debuted at the Factory Theatre the following December with the nearly sold-out run of Priscilla Dreams the Answer by Walt McGough. In the years following, Fresh Ink has worked with over 30 playwrights via a unique submission model and development process, workshopping and producing plays by David Vades, Francisca Da Silveira, MJ Halberstadt, Cecelia Raker, Lila Rose Kaplan, MJ Kaufman, Patrick Gabridge, and many more. Fresh Ink also hosts the Ink Spot staged reading series as a platform to showcase new work in process, as well as the annual Mad Dash 24-hour play festival, which brings together theatre artists from across Boston to create eight new plays in a single day. Now entering its tenth season, Fresh Ink Theatre is a Launch Pad Resident at the BCA and continues to highlight new and exciting voices from across New England.
