Our Mission

To provide all playwrights with the opportunity to excel: by helping them tell their stories for the stage, fostering the development of well-crafted plays, and increasing the visibility of theatre in the community.

How we work

We offer readings, educational seminars, and opportunities for playwrights to see and hear their work onstage - from its earliest stages to the point when it's ready for a full production by a theatre.

Theatre = Collaboration

We connect playwrights with directors, actors, audiences, theatres and theatre organizations to help them create their plays. We also help our playwrights understand the process of promoting their plays and serve as a clearinghouse for theatres that are interested in new work.
