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.
