Watch emerging and emerged playwrights, book writers and lyricists create new work right in front of your eyes.
During two hour time slots, a writer or writer's team will write a new play in the storefront window of the Drama Book Shop with a screen shot of their computer projected behind them, visible to the street. See writers create new worlds, find inspiration and try to avoid Facebook (or not). Come see playwrights from shows coming up or currently playing at venues around town including the NY International Fringe Festival. Support and engage the writers via Twitter and FB , follow their careers, see the play and someday, when you're watching the Tonys, Lilys or Academy Awards, you can say you were there.
