Launched in 2009, the Ethel Woolson Lab is an annual, competitive workshop series. Each year, up to three plays by WTP member playwrights are selected. Each recipient  is given a 25-hour developmental workshop, culminating in a rehearsed, staged reading for the public.

Each selected playwright is partnered with a support team of artists designed for the needs of the play. All readings take place in the Alliance theatre 3rd Floor Black Box.
