We discover and nurture the best new voices of the American theatre.
Page 73’s mission is to develop and produce the work of early-career playwrights who have shown a commitment to playwriting as a career but who have yet to receive a professional production in New York City. Page 73 plays an important role in the playwriting community by offering career guidance, financial assistance, and development and production opportunities. Our goal is to move our playwrights’ work toward production, either through Page 73’s own presentation of their professional premieres or by helping our playwrights connect to available opportunities at our colleague theaters. Our developmental programs offer a forum through which playwrights can develop performance-ready drafts, and our productions create rare opportunities for world and New York premieres.

Why are we called Page 73?
In 1997, the founders of the temporarily-named RJS Productions were in search of a play for their newly-formed company to produce. Playwright Peter Ackerman submitted a paper copy of his play, The Urn, for all three founders to read. They liked the play, a mystery drama, but felt like something was off; the ending just didn’t add up. They finally realized that the second-to-last page of the script was missing, and of course, the answer to the play’s mystery was on that all-important page: page 73!
"Page 73" became the name of the company because we are here to fill that missing piece in a playwright's journey, and to help each playwright we work with get to their own Page 73!
