Like everyone, we have been following the news about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and how best to stay safe. New York City has declared a state of emergency and recommends people not gather in numbers to prevent a possible spread of the disease. Our partners at Pregones/PRTT who invited us to make use of their Manhattan theatre space, have similarly canceled March events until further notice.


We have  decided to postpone 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.

Thank you for your ongoing support of underrepresented voices.

Show your support for Liberation Theatre Company. Please make a generous tax-deductible gift before December 31st. 


We are proud to present our fourth year of
The Writing Residency Program 2020 - 2021

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


We will select four early-career playwrights and 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.

                                              More details: HERE
We look forward to reading your application. Please spread the word.
