Welcome to LAByrinth’s 23rd annual Barn Series! The renowned free reading series is a festival of new plays, and a critical and exciting step in LAB’s development of new work. Many of LAByrinth’s world premieres have come from the Barn, giving audiences a sneak peak into the artistic process, and a chance to see plays before they’re the next hot ticket.
