Jose Rivera, Batsheba Doran and Mona Mansour are among the scribes tapped to be playwriting fellows this season at Gotham’s Lark Play Development Center.
The selected writers will participate in the org’s biweekly Playwrights Workshop, led by Arthur Kopit with backup from Theresa Rebeck, Doug Wright and David Henry Hwang, among others.
Rivera (nommed for an Oscar for his screenplay for “The Motorcycle Diaries”), Doran (“Kin”) and Mansour (“Urge for Going”) will be joined by Dominique Morisseau and A. Rey Pamatmat (“Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them”), the receipient of the Lark fellowship that gives participating writers a year of Gotham housing and a stipend.
Alums of the workshop include Katori Hall, whose play “The Mountaintop” recently began Broadway previews, and Rajiv Joseph, whose “Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo” had a Rialto run last season.
Lark fellowships run for the 2011-12 season.
