a Chicago latinx playwrights' circle

  El Semillero


Since 2014, El Semillero (Spanish for seedbed or nursery) is a Chicago-based playwriting circle dedicated to fostering emerging Latinx playwrights and their work. Sponsored by ALTA Chicago (The Alliance of Latinx Theater Artists) and in residency at Victory Gardens Theater, El Semillero fosters playwrights developing first drafts of original plays over the course of 12 months, culminating in a series of free public readings. 

We are very proud of this program and many others.  Please stay tuned for more exciting updates from our amazing playwrights, as well as, our dates for the upcoming 2018 El Semillero Public Reading Series of New Work.
