We are often asked what happens to a play or a playwright after having a reading at Playwrights’ Platform.

Awards and grants won by our playwrights include:

Our playwrights have been extremely successful in getting their plays performed outside of the New England area and some have landed jobs writing for the movies and television. Plays have been produced on network television, local television and one made into a major motion picture.
