About the CrossRoads Initiative
The CrossRoads Commissioning Project started in 2013, through a grant from the Time Warner Foundation. It is a community-based initiative within the theatre's renowned new play development program and enables SCR to develop plays by writers who reflect the cultural diversity of Orange County and whose process includes residencies that allow them to better understand the community and its people. A renewal of the foundation's grant enabled SCR to expand this project, with nearly a dozen commissioned writers.

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 now are writing plays inspired by their experiences.
