Our prime interest, through this program, is to develop plays which focus on people deemed by society as powerless and downtrodden. Furthermore, the plays must entertain and educate. Submitted scripts undergo scrutiny by the artistic director for its (a) story line, (b) length, (c) number of characters, (d) technical needs, and (e) level of readiness for production.
Accepted scripts undergo a six-month developmental process which includes one-on-one instruction as well as stage readings. Our Main Stage production events are the culmination of this process. Plays are performed in targeted areas as well as in the NYC theatre district.
Interested writers send scripts to:
