Summer theater at the Hop winds up with the annual three-week residency by the New York Theatre Workshop, one of the nation’s leading theaters for developing new work.

Every August, the company brings its work to Dartmouth for a three-week residency, developing and performing six new works-in-progress by some of today’s most innovative professional playwrights and directors. The first one, Buh Wha’ Trouble Is Dis?, opens Aug. 3.

Helped by the students in the Summer Theater Lab, the artists dig into plays and musicals that often later make it to big Off Broadway and Broadway venues. Recent Dartmouth residency projects have included We Live In Cairo, currently in production at Boston’s American Repertory Theater, and Hadestown, which is now running on Broadway and which was recently honored with eight Tony Awards.
