The Writing Residency Program
2022 - 2023
Applications are now being accepted. Check out details HERE:
For believing that American theatre benefits from the presence of diverse voices.
For your past support of Liberation Theatre Company, as we provide a supportive home for emerging Black playwrights.
For supporting us now as we refocus and regroup following the pandemic shutdown, in order to find new ways to help more playwrights.
We don’t have to tell you how difficult the past 20 months have been. All of us have had to change the way we operate, and in some cases, cease operations just to concentrate on survival. Small theatre companies like Liberation, with our very specific mission, now have to rethink how we do business in order to help the writers we serve.
On this Giving Tuesday, your financial contribution of $25, $50, $100 or any amount, will enable us to restart our programs, create spaces and opportunities where Black playwrights can come together either in-person or virtually to work on new plays, develop existing ones, network with industry professionals and experience live theatre.
The theatre world is changing and Liberation Theatre Company is poised to help playwrights take advantage of those changes. With your help, we can do more and help more. To that, we say...
