Los Angeles Playwrights Lab

Los Angeles, CA

What happens when L.A. writers get tired of complaining? The LOS ANGELES PLAYWRIGHTS LAB (LAPL) is born, co-founded by Robert Gardner and Michael Shaw Fisher. The group's mission: to produce original works from the writer's perspective.

"I listened to countless writers during lunches, walks, jogs, in the middle of movies, at plays complaining about not writing enough," says L.A. Playwrights Lab co-founder Robert Gardner. "Not really trying to get 'their' work in front of the public. Always waiting for 'someone' to tell them they will produce it. After years of this, I approached writers and proposed they be their own producers. It took some convincing but here we are and we mean to stay and continue working in Los Angeles."

The group met every other Sunday for two years, critiquing each other's work, during which time they created a 'bank' of plays.

The Playwrights include Robert Gardner, Michael Shaw Fisher, June Carryl, Katie Letien, Meredith Simonds, Julie Cain and R. J. Colleary. The writing done, each Writer becomes is his or her own Producer in the evening of one-acts.

LAPL's first production, "Beginnings," was in Spring 2012 and we're now proud to announce our second run of new material: "7 Corpses," Sept 28-Nov 3 at The Complex in Hollywood.
