Please join us at the Acadiana Center for the Arts (101 W Vermilion St, Lafayette, Louisiana 70501) for three successive sessions of Acadiana Wordlab (2-4 pm on the next three SATURDAYS: July 12th, 19th and 26th ) for a unique and exciting opportunity to work with playwright, Cody Daigle! 

Cody will be presenting an adaptation of his PlayBridge Workshop. 

The PlayBridge Workshop is designed to give writers of different disciplines the space to explore writing for the stage. Through a series of exercises aimed at finding plays at the intersections of different disciplines, PlayBridge gives writers the tools to think and write dramatically.

Cody Daigle has generously offered his time and expertise to us for three sessions to work intensively with writers and those who may have a curiosity about writing to focus on the specialized aspect of the craft of writing for the stage.

Cody Daigle is the resident playwright of The Playhouse Tulsa and Acadiana Repertory Theatre, and is a teaching Artist. Cody is a two-time winner of the Holland New Voices Playwriting Award from the Great Plains Theatre Conference and a member of the Dramatists Guild.

His work has included:

Plays for The Playhouse Tulsa: “William and Judith,” “Tulsa!” “A Radio Christmas Spectacular,” “Little Women” and the recently commissioned “The Bottom of the Sea.”

Plays for Acadiana Repertory Theatre:”In the Bones,” “The Survivalists”.

Other plays: “Providence” (MTWorks), “A Home Across the Ocean” (MTWorks), “18 Victoria” (AUI). Plays for Young Audiences: “The Book of D” (Delta Grand Youth Company), “The Infinite Pages” (AUI) and “The Guardians of Sanzom” (AUI)

Acadiana Wordlab is an uncensored weekly writing workshop in Lafayette, Louisiana. Acadiana Wordlab is free and open to the public (though it’s good to have a few bucks on hand for the presenter’s trouble).
