NEW PLAY DEVELOPMENT

New Plays Live Here

At PlayPenn, we deeply understand that
the playwright is the fundamental authority in the creation of new work.

In that spirit, we are in the process of
transforming PlayPenn into a new work!

Check back here for updates, as they unfold.

We would like to announce that we are conducting a search for a new Artistic Director.
