The full schedule (subject to change) follows:

  • Bob Glaudini's A View from 151st Street (Fall 2007)

  • Brett C. Leonard's Unconditional (Winter 2008)
    "Nine New York stories converge in a racially and sexually charged tale of rage, love, justice and betrayal." Mark Wing-Davey directs the work from the LAB vet who penned Guinea Pig Solo. Developmental Productions

  • Rebecca Cohen's Penalties & Interest (Spring 2008)

  • Scott Hudson's Sweet Storm (Spring 2008)
    "Some clouds, heavy rain and strong wind sweep in on young lovers up a tree." Padraic Lillis will direct. The new season's LABPASS membership will be available June 1 by calling (212) 260-2400 or online at labtheater.org.
