ND Activity
  • Creativity Fund

    Creativity Fund

    The Creativity Fund blends the flexibility of a one-day play reading with the intensive focus of a two-week workshop, providing ten to fifteen playwrights per year the opportunity to program three to five day workshops on an ad hoc basis. Creativity Fund workshops are structured according to each writer's needs at any stage of development and are funded through a lead grant from the Andew W. Mellon Foundation.

  • Full Stage USA

    Full Stage USA

    Full Stage USA is forging new partnerships with five producing theatres or networks of producing theatres across the country. Each partnership is designed to commission a writer to create a new script; provide one to two years of writer-driven support and Lab work at New Dramatists; culminate in a full production staged with the partner theatre; and support future productions and the play's continued life. The partners are Cornerstone Theater Company, the National New Play Network, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Yale Rep, and a network of alternative theatres in Austin. Each project is funded through a lead grant from the Andew W. Mellon Foundation.

Just back from the NNPN Showcase in DC

Had an amazing time down in Washington DC for the showcase reading of THE TOTALITARIANS, my Full Stage USA commission for NNPN via New Dramatists. Fellow NDer Ken Prestininzi directed, and was great to see the readings of other NDers Christina Anderson, Carson Kreitzer, and Carlos Murillo in the showcase as well. The 6PM fresh cookies at the Hampton Inn were also delicious.
