Over our history, TimeLine has produced 10 world premiere and more than 38 Chicago premiere productions, making an ongoing commitment to developing, supporting and featuring new work. The Playwrights Collective continues that effort, offering a supportive environment for playwrights who share an affinity for TimeLine’s mission.

A diverse group of emerging and established writers participate in the Playwrights Collective. They meet regularly and may work on any project that fits TimeLine’s mission. Meetings provide the opportunity to read and hear scenes from work under development, ask questions, discuss challenges and share progress with peers.

The playwrights listed here are alums of the 2020-2021 Playwrights Collective. The next cohort is still to be determined.
