About the CrossRoads Initiative
Thanks to a generous renewal of a grant from the Time Warner Foundation, South Coast Repertory is expanding its CrossRoads commissioning project— a community-based initiative within the theatre’s renowned new work program to develop plays that explore the cultural diversity of Orange County through artist residencies. The new funding will support continued work on the plays by the six playwrights tapped in 2013 for the first CrossRoads commissions, and it will enable SCR to commission a second cohort of four new playwrights.

Introducing the Round Two CrossRoads Playwrights
During the summer of 2015, four playwrights—Dipika Guha, Adam Gwon, Octavio Solis and Lauren Yee—spent ten days in Orange County, exploring the artistic and cultural diversity and connecting with organizations and individuals. They’ll now create a piece inspired by their experiences, which SCR hopes to develop during the summer of 2016.
