Through a combination of personalized dramaturgy, group workshops, and professional development classes, Company One Theatre’s expansive PlayLab Circuit program is an incubator of new work for writers of varied experience levels and backgrounds.

The myriad PlayLab Circuit initiatives aim to provide professional development that aligns with C1’s mission of nurturing civically-engaged artists and creating a more equitable city.

Open Circuit events, like Field Work and Open Writes, provide free public gatherings for people who make new plays to grow their skills and vision.

The Circuit Labs — Volt Lab and Flux Lab — provide writers at various stages of the practice with direct dramaturgical support and opportunities to develop work towards public debut, from showcases to productions.


You can also learn about our long history of supporting playwrights in our PlayLab Circuit Program history.

This season, our Open Circuit programs focus on The Art of Criticism. How do we hold space to examine and explore how we create and respond to art in our craft?


C1’s Field Works are professional and creative development workshops for people who make new plays. Moderated by C1’s artistic staff, local and national guest artists who provide valuable insights and advice for attendees in a roundtable + interactive discussion format.


C1’s Virtual Open Writes are free, monthly Saturday morning meetings open to all writers and theatre makers dedicated to new work. Led by Resident Playwright Kirsten Greenidge, each meeting features a special guest writer who leads exercises and writing time.


The Volt Lab provides mentorship opportunities for pre-professional theater creatives to practice and enhance their craft while actively engaging with our productions and community engagement programming. This year’s Volt Lab is designed to help early career playwrights, dramaturgs, and directors hone their craft. Participants will join a cohort of civically-engaged, antiracist peers led by C1’s Resident Playwright Kirsten Greenidge. The cohort will meet monthly in-person from January to May 2024 to dream, write, devise, rewrite, and develop pieces created both collaboratively and individually, culminating in an in-person showcase in June.

Nick Baker (he/him) — Playwright

Nick Baker is a playwright and theater artist based out of Worcester, MA. His art values community, accountability, and examining the uncomfortable above all else. He dreams of plays that revitalize the heavy spirits of working class people. Of plays that cross divides and show the power of building a coalition. Of plays that make us feel like everything is going to be okay, even when we must confront the darkest parts of our humanity. Nick has written two hip-hop theater plays: And Then a Fight Broke Out and Working On It: A Story of Struggle, Love, and Donuts, both of which were developed and workshopped at the New Africa House Experimental Lab at UMass Amherst, where Nick earned his Bachelor’s of Arts in Theater. Nick is also an active member of the Worcester Writers’ Collective, where he goes weekly to share and develop new works.

“I want to both push the boundaries of my imagination in playwriting and learn more about what theater can be through collaborating with my fellow artists in this year’s Volt Lab cohort!  The potential of theater to build bridges is endless; I hope this process brings me a wider vision for creating new works.”—Nick Baker

Cas also plays Puck/Egeus and leads education workshops for Boston Theater Company’s educational tour of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” You may have tossed tea and committed treason with Cas as Goody Hewes at the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum or seen Cas during the 2 seconds they were in CODA (2021), for which they were gifted an Honorary Certificate from the Screen Actors Guild (signed by Jewish Icon Fran Drescher) for their work in the ensemble. They’re honored to work, grow, and collaborate with this special cohort in the C1 Volt Lab.

“The Volt Lab is a unique opportunity to collaborate with and learn from both our peers in the cohort and the artists at Company 1 while building something that is wholly devised through open conversation, diverse community, expansive creation. This experience promises to challenge and hone us as artists, individuals, and a collective.”—Cas Berta

Annalise Guidry (they/them) — Director

“I believe in the power of theater to transcend systems of domination so that we may truly know union. With Company One’s Volt Lab, I hope to bring us all together through diverse ways of storytelling.” —Annalise Guidry


Marc Hem Lee (he/him) — Director

Marc A. Hem Lee, MFA, MAT, MS, MD is continually seeking the seamlessness between biography and identity. He contains multiverses, not multitudes, and explores each life through the multiverse of play. Dr. Hem Lee’s interests are: Work. Play. Science. Art. He expresses all these through storytelling.

Michael Chekhov stated that “[a]ll true artists bear within themselves a deeply rooted and often unconscious desire for transformation”. To Dr. Hem Lee, play is the medium of transformation. He is currently testing this perspective on play through the practice of Psychiatry, and is training at Harvard’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. More meaningful than the graduate degrees he holds, he also holds the stories of his patients on life’s journey.

He continually explores the intersection and parallels of art and science. His interest lies in the human capacity for learning. His passion lies in creating brave spaces, creating the environment for others to own their stories. His prerogative lies in teaching people how to navigate both art and science in their own lives. His identity is a gradual awakening and rediscovery of what he loves – the workshop, the laboratory, the microcosm of worlds that are in theatre, and the concurrent sense of scientific inquiry that can be gained from this exploration.

“If the artist has an unconscious desire for transformation, to paraphrase Michael Chekhov, then the scientist seeks to bring this desire to the conscious. To accept this duality is to become simultaneously transformed while transforming others.”—Marc Hem Lee

Jenny S. Lee (she/her) — Director

Jenny S. Lee is a Boston-based AAPI director, actress, and arts administrator. She is also a Boston College graduate, Northern Virginia native, and currently serves as the community engagement associate at CHUANG stage, Boston’s Asian American theatre company cultivating joyful and challenging AAPI stories that pioneer translingual activism in the arts.

Recent regional acting credits include CONCRETE DREAMS (TC Squared), TROUBLEMAKER, and TAKEOVER (Asian American Playwright’s Collective).

“It’s a thrill to be able to get the chance to work with Company One, a theatre I’ve admired for a long time for its dedication to community engagement, as well as the incomparable Kirsten Greenidge. I’m looking forward to honing my craft with the cohort at Volt Lab and making some intentional art together!” —Jenny S. Lee


Hannah Levinson (she/her) — Dramaturg

Hannah Levinson is a multi-hyphenate theatre artist, with a background in directing, playwriting, dramaturgy, and arts admin.

“To me, community is the most vital and necessary aspect of creating theatre. Through Volt Lab, I am excited to gain a new network of social-justice oriented artists, who I hope will become a part of my artist community long-term!” —Hannah Levinson


Elijah Punzal (they/he) — Playwright

Elijah Punzal is a multidisciplinary artist (triple “P”: playwright, performer, and producer) from the California Bay Area now based in Somerville, MA. Elijah’s creative and community-oriented endeavors are influenced by their identity as a Queer, Generation 1.5 Pilipinx immigrant, and they recently presented a 15 min snippet of their new play-in-development through The Voices of America Writers Workshop titled Children of the Basement which is inspired by their childhood growing up in an elderly care facility.

“I’m honored to be part of the Volt Lab cohort this cycle to make some awesome art with such talented creative collaborators. It’ll be my first steps in the Boston arts community since moving from California, at tsaka sabik na sabik ako – I’m super excited!” —Elijah Punzal

A graduate of Boston University’s School of Theatre, his undergraduate thesis, Daddy Issues, was chosen for entry into the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival.

“I intend to harness art to promote debate concerning topics that I believe need to be addressed: our modern lack of civic knowledge and engagement (and the devastating consequences thereof), the destructive potential of the ubiquitous internet, ultra-processed living, and a crippling lack of community (especially in young people).” —Thomas Wark

Company One’s PlayLab has gone through many iterations over the years, and began in 2011 as a program collaboratively designed with the Boston Center for the Arts, highlighting new works by women. The annual festival format shifted in 2014 to a Lab-based model that supports writers of all gender identities, at different stages of their careers. In 2017, we began offering Bootcamp convenings, providing creative and professional development intensives, open to anyone. As Covid-19 shuttered opportunities for in-person programming, we reformulated the initiative entirely as the digital C1 PlayLab Circuit, which has two prongs of activity: The Circuit Labs (Flux Lab, Surge Lab, and Volt Lab), which closely support small groups of writers working with staff dramaturgs on specific writing projects; and The Open Circuit (Field Work and Open Writes), free events which evolved out of Bootcamp, and which provide master classes with guest artists on topics of creative and professional development.

PlayLab is designed and run by the dramaturgy staff at Company One Theatre, with Ilana M. Brownstein as senior dramaturg and program producer. The comprehensive program history below documents the incredible number of writers and guest artists who have been part of this important work.
