National New Play Network’s Playwrights In Residence Program

I was aware of the amazing work the National New Play Network is doing with their Continued Life of New Plays Fund, which was also featured as a positive example in Outrageous Fortune.

But through Adam’s recent interview with Steve Yockey, I came across an equally interesting program from NNPN called the Emerging Playwrights in Residence program. This program takes recent graduates of MFA programs, and puts them in residence for 1 year with a NNPN member theatre, where they participate directly in the artistic and producing life of the company.

Because the residency is only a year, is reserved only for recent MFA grads, and has no production guarantee, this program is not a perfect fit for The Homing Project, but it could certainly be an ally. It is also a perfect match for one of my take-away wishes from Outrageous Fortune – playwrights embedded in the functioning life of a theatre.
