Playwrights need

Page 73.

Page 73 discovers the best new voices of the American theatre and gives them the support they need. The Campaign for Page 73 will raise $2 million to do what we do even better and continue to make a massive impact on the new canon of American theatre. 

If the Page 73 community raises $250,000 by March 31, 2019, Carson and Joseph Gleberman and the Howard Gilman Foundation will generously match that amount dollar for dollar. Every gift of $2,000 or more counts towards this challenge!

Playwrights need a launchpad.

For twenty years we’ve honed our expertise in identifying and holistically supporting the most talented playwrights. We’re known as the go-to career launchpad for playwrights who go on to be defining voices in contemporary culture.

“Once Page 73 produced one of my plays, suddenly I wasn’t an unproduced playwright anymore—and that was a really big deal. This unspoken thing happened—suddenly it was OK to put my plays into full production.”

—SAMUEL D. HUNTER

Playwrights need momentum.

We're strategically growing and strengthening our organization to increase our impact on the talented playwrights who will need us for years to come. We are raising $2 million to support the following three funds.

With Board-managed funds on reserve, we will have the rare flexibility to take advantage of opportunities for the organization and our playwrights as they arise.

 

Playwrights need us.

Together, let's celebrate all that our playwrights have accomplished in Page 73’s first twenty years.
