We are proud to present the four playwrights selected for our fourth year of LTC's Writing Residency Program 

The program furthers our commitment to the development of new Black playwrights for the American theatre.

 

We selected four early-career playwrights and will provide them with dramaturgical and professional support over a ten-month period, during which time they will each be required to complete a new full-length play.

Like everyone, we have been following the news about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and how best to stay safe. As you now know, New York City has declared a state of emergency and we are quarantined to prevent a spread of the disease...until further notice.

 

We postponed the “NewVoices Reading Series" scheduled March 24-27, 2020. The reading series was to be the culmination of ten months of work done by four amazingly talented, emerging playwrights - Jessica Charles, Camille Darby, Johnny G. Lloyd, and Jeremy O’Brian - members of the Liberation Theatre Company Writing Residency Program for 2019-2020. They are playwrights to watch out for, fresh voices with something to say and we were delighted to get to work with them this year.
