About DDA Ground Floor Series
Studio Productions from the Professional Actor Training Program
At the heart of every theatrical production, regardless of scope, are the artists who posit questions about the human experience. The Department of Dramatic Art’s Professional Actor Training Program with Playmakers Repertory Company’s Ground Floor is an occasional series that engages our graduate acting company in material chosen (and sometimes written) specifically for them. These studio productions focus on the actors and the marrow of their process, and are led by insightful and resourceful directors from within the company or those visiting on fellowships.
