Welcome to The Playground!
New Plays speak to us, speak for us and inspire us to speak for ourselves.
This program is dedicated to the memory of friend and emerging playwright,
Tadd Gero, 1987-2009
We are seeking innovative, incendiary works to develop to their fullest potential. We aim to expose both established and emerging playwrights to a broad audience and to bring exciting, quality new work to the stage. Once a script is chosen, the playwright is assigned a “Play Group”: a producer and a team of director, dramaturge and actors. After a specified workshop rehearsal process, each selected work will be produced as a public staged reading. The event will be followed by a post-show discussion in which the audience can contribute to the process. Scripts selected for development in a workshop may be considered for future full production.
