  • Board of Directors

    Board of Directors

    Each fiscal year four current resident playwrights are appointed to the Board of Directors by the Writers' Executive Committee. The playwright board members enjoy full voting and decision-making powers minus the financial requirements of non-playwright directors. They provide a valuable and artist-centered perspective on the governance of New Dramatists.

  • 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.

  • PlayTime

    PlayTime

    Launched in 2002, the PlayTime Developmental Studio provides five New Dramatists writers with a two-week writers' retreat, right in the heart of New York City. PlayTime is a laboratory designed to give playwrights the opportunity to explore, workshop, rethink, and revise ambitious new works of theatre by drawing from a supportive resident company of actors, directors, stage managers, staff, and fellow playwrights.

  • Writers' Executive Committee

    Writers' Executive Committee

    The Writers' Executive Committee is a voluntary grouping of resident playwrights who meet throughout the year to discuss and make decisions concerning the work of New Dramatists and to help guide the organization.
