It consists of lectures, script critiquing, writing sessions and interactions with known playwrights, directors and selected actors.

The 10 fellows accepted to the program will be mentored by Glenn Sevilla Mas, a multi award-winning playwright, and will be given access to all Virgin Labfest 14 plays and selected rehearsals as part of their mentorship. The Fellowship Program will conclude in a staged reading of the fellows’ works directed by Dennis Marasigan on July 15 at the CCP Bulwagang Amado Hernandez at 6 p.m. This culminating program is free of charge and open to the public.
