This year marked our sophomore year at our new home, The Drake, and it’s becoming clear that we have found the right place to work and play. Over 90 theatre artists gathered to work on 9 new plays which were experienced by nearly 2,000 theatre-goers in the comfortable environment of The Drake, right in the center of the great city of Phladelphia.

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!
