Turning an initial idea into a stage-ready script is no easy feat. But for the past three years, up-and-coming playwrights with Boston-set projects have gotten a hand with stipends, dramaturgical meetings, research assistance, table reads and beyond. Plays in development include Obehi Janice’s Ole White Sugah Daddy, which follows a Dorchester native courting an angel investor for her startup. The goal: To spotlight stories that reflect the breadth of life in Boston today. We’ll clap for that.
