Iowa Playwrights Workshop

It’s Our Mission


One element of Tallgrass Theatre’s mission is to provide an outlet for local talent to explore and develop.

Tallgrass Theatre would like to invite writers, actors, and audience members to experience the process of creating theatre together. Our Iowa Playwrights Workshop (IPW) allows writers and actors to grow in their craft while developing new works of theatre.  It also invites the audience to be part of the process and see how scripts grow and change from the first reading to a staged performance! The Iowa Playwrights Workshop is dedicated to developing and nurturing the theatre craft in Iowa.
