The Campaign for Page 73

We are celebrating Page 73's 20th Anniversary by raising $2 million to give our playwrights, like 2018-19 season playwrights Mia Chung and Michael R. Jackson, more of what they need.

"Page 73 is meeting me exactly where I am in my career.

I was in need of an institutional home, people in New York to share my work with, and a relationship with a producing organization that is willing to take a risk on me and say that they stand for my work. My relationship with Page 73 makes me feel like there are wonderful people who are hopeful for me and who believe in my work."

"My play, Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue, was rejected by pretty much all the big New York theatres. Page 73 took the leap of faith and Elliot went on to be shortlisted for the Pulitzer and produced in numerous languages around the globe. An experimental play about Puerto Ricans in Philly. A first-time writer. I still pinch myself for the blessing of faith they gave me."
