THE FIGHTING WORDS PROCESS: Each year we select three scripts for development that we feel have the potential to grow into the kinds of plays that fit our mission.
Each script then goes through a series readings and feedback sessions, with our ensemble and audiences participating.
In fact, several of these selections have gone on to full productions with BWBTC, as well as other theatre companies: most recently 180 Degree Rule, Patchwork Drifter, L’Imbecile, and Bo Thomas and the Case of the Sky Pirates (FULL LIST).

FEEDBACK: “I hope the evolution of “Deeds Not Words” made it really clear how valuable I found the BWB script development process. The performances (it doesn’t seem adequate to call them mere “readings”) showed me how the pacing worked (or didn’t), the audience responses identified gaps, and the discussions with y’all really helped sharpen my thoughts about what I want the piece to do. And it was thrilling to see the fights.” –Anne Bertram, Deeds Not Words
