Held in the historic New England village of Peterborough, New Hampshire, each of the five ten-day residencies are designed as script laboratories utilizing a collected ensemble of theatre and film professionals to test and give voice to student work and offer courses and workshops in various aspects of the craft and profession.   

Between residencies students work on projects throughout each of the four semesters under the supervision of established writer/mentors drawn from the professional theatre and film worlds.
