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.

Diary Play is a one-woman show constructed almost entirely of old diary entries from the playwright's teenhood interwoven with current day reflections. Through looking back, the playwright is able to answer questions about why she is the woman she is today, and create a newfound sense of hope for the woman she might eventually become in the future.
