Conference Artist Lineup 2017

This year's Conference playwrights represent a range of cultural and career experience, contributing to the creation of a dynamic and diverse community that will gather in Philadelphia this July.  We're confident that the support we offer this year's Conference playwrights will lead to full productions of each of their plays, as has been the case with 60 of the 100 plays developed by PlayPenn since 2005. 

The box office is now open!

OSLO by J.T. Rogers wins the Tony Award for Best Play!

Please join us in congratulating J.T. Rogers on this achievement! 

PlayPenn Oslo Tony

Developed at PlayPenn in 2015, Oslo was inspired by the true story of the back-channel talks, unlikely friendships and quiet heroics that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords between the Israelis and Palestinians, Rogers presents a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas - a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions.  We could not be more thrilled to have played a role in supporting the work of one of this country's finest dramatists!
