What is PlayPenn?

About PlayPenn - new play development from PlayPenn on Vimeo.

Our video was produced by The PHILO Project - an organization that creates professional videos for small Philadelphia area nonprofits free of charge. To learn more about PHILO, visit

10x10 Fund

We extend our deepest thanks to the inaugural donors of our 10x10 Fund, whose collective support totaled $110,000, toward underwriting our playwright fees for 100 playwrights over the next 10 years.

We now invite you to lend your support to this important campaign that will help us to develop 10 new plays, on average, each year for the next decade.


Just imagine the results we can achieve.
