Special signature Writers Lab hosted by Eric Michael Kochmer and moderated by Cindy & Flip Kobler. The origin of We Make Movies, our signature Writers Lab provides writers an opportunity to have their pieces stage read by professional actors, and then receive feedback from the audience. It's a pivotal stop in our development pipeline.

Our featured script is written by Allen Cordell (who will be directing), adapted from the comic novel Saint Cole by Noah Van Sciver.

Free to attend, no RSVP necessary, but arrive early to be guaranteed a seat!
