New Dramatists

New Dramatists is an artist incubator committed to supporting playwrights who represent the richness and diversity of American theatre.  Among Time Warner Foundation-supported offerings like Creativity Fund, Full Stage NYC, and the Playwrights’ Lab, New Dramatists residents have limitless opportunity to refine their craft.

Time Warner Foundation’s signature support of the Grantee is intended to provide a stream of up-and-coming writers with the best possible tools.  By preparing an expansive assortment of diverse voices to create, our grant positions media for a vibrant future.

This set of dynamic perspectives has already marked some impressive achievements.  Recent years have seen over 220 productions of resident developed plays and 50% of New Dramatists playwrights are concurrently working in film, TV, and other media.  These diverse cohorts of artists are part of what makes the seven year residency at New Dramatists so unique, challenging, and impactful.
