    New Plays Live Here

    We Rely on You

    PlayPenn has a simple goal, to improve the way new plays are developed. We believe artists are free to engage in risk taking, boundary-pushing work when freed from the pressures of financial success. We collect no application fee from playwrights; we sell no tickets. We can only do what we do through your generous support.

    Producer Program

    You love new plays. You love what we do. You want to do more. Major donors who are looking to translate passion into action can give at the Producer level. Our Producers help to subsidize the annual Conference and are essential partners in bringing new stories to life.

    Our Supporters

    We gratefully acknowledge all of the many ways our donors assist us in developing and sharing essential new work with Philadelphia, the region, the nation and the world. PlayPenn is proud of our sustaining partnerships with these vital individuals and institutions. Join us in celebrating new plays and new voices.

    "It’s impossible to imagine my writing life without PlayPenn’s support. Over the last eleven years, my collaborators at PlayPenn have become part of my theatrical family. "
