A Letter from 2016 Tow Foundation Playwright-in-Residence Caroline V. McGraw:
I’m writing to you as a Page 73 addict.
Page 73 exists solely to get more early-career playwrights on stages in New York and around the country. And now, more than ever, this commitment to providing a platform for new and diverse voices must continue to thrive.
In 2016, Page 73 was the company that enabled me to quit my day job and launch one of my most creative and professionally fruitful years ever. They named me their 2016 Tow Foundation Playwright-in-Residence and I focused on developing Ultimate Beauty Bible with resources like workshops, time to revise, and the ability to be fully present at my rehearsals. The result was a beautiful production that I could not be more proud of and the start of a new chapter in my career as a working writer.
I’m extremely honored that Page 73 welcomed me to the ranks of the many successful writers they’ve premiered in New York, including Quiara Alegría Hudes, Samuel D. Hunter, Dan LeFranc, George Brant, Cori Thomas, and Clare Barron, to name a few.
As Page 73’s year and my residency draw to a close, I am writing to personally ask you to support Page 73.
Will you consider making a tax-deductible gift to Page 73 so they can continue to change the lives of playwrights like me?
