Playwriting intern Megan Fevurly on her time with Plan-B

Megan Fevurly is in her second year in the MFA Dramatic Writing Program at the University of Idaho. She spent a weeklong internship with us at Plan-B earlier this month, the company’s 8th intern since 2007. Megan is a Denver-based playwright. Her plays have received readings and productions at Curious New Voices, University of Denver, The Edge Theatre, University of Idaho and Towne Street Theatre. She is a self-professed theatre geek, working at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts and as an advisory board member for the Athena Project, also in Denver.

Being an intern at Plan-B Theatre is an experience I will forever cherish. Their commitment to new work is exemplary and this support of local artists is nothing short of commendable. I had the opportunity to meet and learn from their resident artists and playwrights, seeing them in action at the first rehearsal of a new staged reading [MARRY CHRISTMAS by Elaine Jarvik], and the final rehearsals and opening of a new play [CHRISTMAS WITH MISFITS]. I was also asked to lead a talk-back of the new play with students from the Salt Lake Arts Academy in the audience (an academy with which Plan-B has a great relationship of fostering the performing arts with its students), and have a play of my own read by the ten playwrights of Plan-B’s Lab, who provided me with wonderful feedback to help further develop the piece.

Through it all Plan-B’s wonderful team mentality, community involvement,and their passion for theatre is evident in the high-quality work they produce, and I am very honored to have learned from them and will lead by their example as I establish my career in theatre.
