Shape the Future of Theater
By supporting Playwrights Horizons, you are our partner in developing and producing the most singular American voices. Give a gift today so we can continue sharing the stories of today by the writers of tomorrow.
The stories we share on our stages reflect the world around us, and are made up of diverse voices from all backgrounds. We also invite Guest Curators to create programming that complements our onstage work. Most recently, for The Thanksgiving Play we highlighted Indigenous voices with new play readings and a visual art installation in the Sharp lobby.
Playwrights is the one place that allows me to bring my full self into the relationship. I get to be Native American and female and angry and sad and as sarcastic and funny as I want to be.—Larissa FastHorse, author of The Thanksgiving Play
Your gift will help create the stories of today.
"They make sure we have full access, we are comfortable, and get what we need." Sabrina Dennison, Director of Artistic Sign Language for I Was Most Alive with You.
Theater should be accessible to everyone. Each of our performances of I Was Most Alive with You was accessible to Deaf and hard-of-hearing audience members, and every show this season offers performances with closed captioning, audio description, or ASL interpretation.
Walking into Playwrights Horizons is like being in an upside-down world: I walked up to the box office, and a staff member used some signs in ASL. It’s the complete opposite of what I’m used to experiencing, and it has made me feel so welcome.—Shelly Guy, Deaf audience member
Your gift expands access for all people and communities.
More Support for Artists
Our writers have always been at the heart of our mission. We are the first — and only — theater in the country to compensate writers for their time in casting, design, and pre-production meetings, and provide contributions toward their health insurance costs.
When I got sick, they found me health insurance. And they aren’t just doing this for me, or for a small few. Playwrights is supporting an entire generation of writers.—Max Posner, author of The Treasurer
