About The Dramaworkshop

The Dramaworkshop

Launched in fall of 2014, The Dramaworkshop receives play submissions each season from nationally recognized playwrights. Of these, a select number are chosen by our company of Resident Artists to move on to various phases of development such as Staged Readings, Workshops, and Studio or Main Stage Productions. Edgar & Emily by Joseph McDonough, which was developed through The Dramaworkshop during the 2015-2016 season, will have its World Premiere at Palm Beach Dramaworks March 31 through April 22, 2018.

Domestic Animals
by Jennifer Faletto

At the height of the Vietnam War, Lori's brother dodges the draft and her husband enlists. Left alone, she disappears into her imagination. Seduced by the comfort of her hallucinations, Lori risks giving over to her fantasy forever. A powerful look at love, family, trauma and healing, Jennifer Faletto's play explores the impact of war for the loved ones on the home front. Magical and heartfelt, Domestic Animals wakes our primal instincts and dares us to find our true pack.

Buried Cities, The Dramaworkshop
Buried Cities
by Jennifer Faletto
Apr. 6 - Apr. 17, 2016

Mia and Louis are held up at gunpoint in their home. Though they are unharmed, their marriage begins to fall apart in the weeks after as each tries to find safety in the world again. Their young nephew, Brandon, who mourns for a father who was lost to war, feels more real in the virtual world of war video games than in the actual world around him. And Leah, a shape shifter who is hiding her own deformity, moves between them all to help them find beauty in the monstrosity of that world. Buried Cities explores the lasting psychological effects of violence and what happens when we’re thrust into the role of victim and don’t react the way we’re “supposed to.”
