In The Mistakes Madeline Made the fear of bathing (ablutophia) becomes a problem for three personal assistants working in cramped quarters. An unlikely story of love and dirty people. TheNext Step series is a week long workshop that gives writers a more in-depth experience to develop their work. Working with actors and a director, writers can use this time to work through rewrites and questions in the script. The workshop culminates in a reading that is free and open to the public.
