Axial Playwrights


AXIAL PLAYWRIGHTS is a program for playwrights to have their new one act or full length work read and discussed for development purposes by Axial's ensemble and special guests. Classic plays are also read to give our ensemble members an opportunity to exhibit and develop their craft.

Robust Admixture

The Poetry Project  is a yearly project made as an outside-the-box short film production.  


This year we are thrilled to have co-produced a short film directed by Cady McClain titled "Robust Admixture" - compiled from work by Westchester poet Laureate B.K. Fischer's novella of poems, "Ceive."


The film is now in post-production and will be ready to share at our fundraiser in May 2023!
