We’re extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished since our founding in 2008. Our playwriting prize (The Leah) has helped to launch careers and is widely perceived as one of the most prestigious awards for emerging women, trans, and non-binary playwrights. Our Vladimir grant provides much needed support for writers facing serious illness. We are always looking for opportunities to offer even more support for those historically underserved by the theater community. For example, we recently launched The Boost, a commission for women, trans, and non-binary playwrights age 40 and over. Everything we do requires your financial support.
