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.

Coming up next!
