As part of The Farm Theater’s 2018-19 College Collaboration Project, Broadway World reports that playwright Kimberly Belflower will partner with the Furman University theatre department to mentor budding female writers. Belflower will converse with students via video this February to discuss the theme she is writing about to shape a new project. Cast with professional actors, the play will have a three-day workshop in New York City in August 2018. The project will culminate in a public reading, along with other collaborative plays, in NYC in June 2019 with a cast made up of students from each school alongside professional actors.

The Farm Theater name is inspired by the “farm” system of baseball whose role is to provide experience and training for developing players. The Farm Theater develops early career artists that may not have the support system afforded others, through workshops, productions and mentoring. The centerpiece of the group’s programming is The College Collaboration Project.
