Tow Playwrights-in-Residence

Our playwright-in-residence program provides transformational opportunities for playwrights to hone their craft and produce their first play on a New York City stage.

The residencies are awarded to New York City theaters to support and present the work of a pre-selected playwright. The award integrates the selected playwright into the theater’s day-to-day operations and includes a full-time salary and benefits, allowing each playwright to gain experience and insight into all aspects of the nonprofit theater world. Sponsoring theater companies commit to a full production of the playwright’s play.
