...to our 2019/20 Resident Playwrights
The Writing Residency Program is in keeping with our core mission to expand the number of Black playwrights working in theatre so that more voices and more viewpoints, reflecting the diversity of our world, can be expressed.
LTC has 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.
