     Our 10×10 Supporters

    In 2014 PlayPenn launched an audacious plan: to fully fund the playwrights fees for 10 playwrights a year for 10 years, thus solidifying our commitment to develop 100 playwrights over the next 10 years. We extend our deepest thanks to the inaugural donors of our 10×10 Fund, whose collective support totaled $110,000.

    PlayPenn’s work in service to new plays, playwrights, and the American theatre is only possible through the generosity of our donors. Please partner with us by making a tax-deductible contribution in support of our artists today.

    "You created a phenomenal two weeks of fervent artistry at work and then brought it to huge audiences so they could catch the fever. I'm so grateful to have been a part this conference. It fed me as a playwright (beyond gelato) in a way that I don't get as often as I'd like."

    -Jennifer Maisel, Playwright
