Though we have a vibrant new play scene in New England, it’s very difficult for our regional writers to find productions of their plays in other parts of the country. This book puts the scripts in the hands of theater lovers all across the country. Our hope is that these plays that first found life on stage here in New England will find new incarnations, for new audiences. We want New England to be a net-exporter of theatrical creativity, and this book will help that happen.
The New England New Play Alliance is a group of theater companies, playwrights, directors, arts advocates, and students coming together to support new plays created in New England. They work to:
Grow audiences for new plays.
Encourage more new play development and production.
Spread the word outside of Boston about plays/playwrights from Greater Boston/New England
