Nocturnal Commissions: A theatrical whirlwind


noc com logo

MONDAY, JAN. 29 at 6:00PM at the Loewe Theater at Hunter College: 

a one-night-only benefit evening of mini-masterpieces by New Dramatists residents and alums—inspired by the prompts of eight adventurous commissioners.

New micro-plays and songs commissioned by lead evening sponsors Charlotte & David Ackert, along with Mark Kingdon & Anla Cheng, Linda Healey, Willy Holtzman, Robin Lynn, Abbie Van Nostrand, "luck of the draw" commissioner Susan Gurman, and New Dramatists commissioner Nancy Giles. Special thanks to our "luck of the draw" sponsor, Jill Matichak. 


Nancy Giles

Performer, CBS Sunday Morning contributor, and ND favorite Nancy Giles!


the hat

The New Dramatists Hat (generously donated by alumnus David Grimm) is put to use whenever a ND writer must be selected over another…when we can submit only one writer for an Award, for example, or when we have one spot left in PlayTime and two interested writers...

During NOCTURNAL COMMISSIONS, each commissioner's writer was drawn out of The Hat.
