Through Seattle Repertory Theatre’s The Other Season, we present and develop exclusively new work from some of the most exciting Seattle, national, and international artistic voices, who are shaping the contemporary theatre landscape. We offer each collaborator, whether they are a playwright, director, or devisor, a menu of development support, while introducing these creators to our Seattle community of artists, audiences, and our Rep family. Some of these activities include free public readings, residencies with writers working on brand new work, and extended workshops. In assembling, this year’s The Other Season, we sought artists who eloquently articulated challenging questions and tackled the zeitgeist through innovative forms. All of these artists expressed their excitement to be welcomed to our Pacific Northwest community, and SRT feels honored to support them on their journeys for these specific projects and beyond. Our foremost goals are to cultivate these important relationships, provide time and space and experience to foster these artists’ work, and for these collaborators to become a vibrant part of our cultural imprint.

We hope you will join us in the celebration of these artists and share in our enthusiasm for having them and their powerful work as part of The Other Season.
