About the CrossRoads Initiative
The CrossRoads Commissioning Project started in 2013, through a grant from the Time Warner Foundation. It is an initiative, within the theatre's renowned new play development program, to bring commissioned playwrights into Orange County to engage with the area’s diverse communities during exploratory residencies. In 2017, another renewal of the foundation’s grant enabled SCR to expand the project for a third round of commissions and residencies.

Introducing the Round Three CrossRoads Playwrights
In the summer of 2017, the third cohort of CrossRoads playwrights—Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig, Ike Holter, Madhuri Shekar and Karen Zacarías—spent seven days in Orange County, exploring its artistic and cultural diversity and connecting with organizations and individuals. Playwright Mike Lew also joined the CrossRoads Project in a collaboration with Adam Gwon (Round Two) on a new musical project.
