In the spotlight at PTC:

  • Resistência: 3 Fados

    Elaine Avila is just finishing her three years as a PTC Associate with a July workshop of her play Fado. This essay, which we consider a stellar example of the kind of dramaturgy playwrights engage in, was originally published as part of a blog salon called “Stages of Resistance”, curated by Caridad Svich for The Lark Theatre. The series welcomes reflections on themes related to making work for live performance in political and aesthetic resistance to forms and systems that oppress human rights and censor or severely limit freedom of expression.

  • Fringe New Play Prize: Setting Bones

    The Fringe New Play Prize work-in-progress (Untitled) Boxes has undergone many transformations in the last few months, including a new title. Read about the playwrights’ progress.

  • Call for Submissions for Block A

    We are calling for submissions for our most popular program for emerging artists: Block A. We offer Fall and Winter cohorts with different mentors. Check it out!

Our playwrights are working on some great projects.
