What they’re saying about us

“I’m really impressed with the work of Playwrights’ Platform”

 John Guare (The House of Blue Leaves)

 

“I’ve had a long association with Playwrights’ Platform and am aware of no other organization in New England so consistently and enthusiastically devoted to developing, shaping, and presenting new plays.” 

– A.R. Gurney (former Playwrights’ Platform member, The Dining Room, Sylvia, Love Letters)

 

“An opportunity to view some of the best unproduced works by some of the area’s brightest playwrights.” 

– Boston Globe

 

“The American Theater needs playwrights badly at this time … This is an admirable project, and the best of authors need badly what the Platform provides.” 

– Elliot Norton

 

“I began my work as a playwright in Boston … studying playwriting at Brandeis University and seeing my first productions staged by Playwrights’ Platform, under the guidance of Beverly Creasey. One of the one-acts I did there was so successful people urged me to expand it, and that became my first produced full-length play - Sunday on the Rocks - which was given a wonderful production starring Paula Plum in the South End.” 

- Theresa Rebeck, (former Playwrights’ Platform member, Bad Dates, NYPD Blue, Law & Order, Brooklyn Bridge)
