Description

This was a workshop production of The Boys by Joey Miller and Frank Peppiatt.

Though they come in different styles and venues, workshop productions share four similar qualities:

1) They are presentations of brand new plays which have never been seen by an audience anywhere before.

2) They change night-to-night depending on the reaction of the audience.

3) The changes will be small (the insertion or deletion of a line of dialogue or a costume) or large (the insertion or deletion of a song, a scene, a character or an entire act) depending on the reaction of the audience the night before.

4) The play will be different at the end of the process. "Workshopping" is the modern method of developing plays, which replaced the old method of "out-of-town-try-outs." This time consuming process was too expensive to continue. In workshops, most changes are made in rehearsal. Theatre Sheridan had six weeks during which the actors and production staff created then discarded many versions of each scene presented.
