Playwrights’ Platform supports justice for all.  We hope that this support, combined with a continuation of the arts, will not only help our nation heal, but will lead us to a better place, where everyone is treated equally and where democracy is truly realized.

Playwrights’ Platform is a non-profit, Boston-area cooperative of playwrights, directors, and resident actors. Since 1972, Playwrights’ Platform has helped develop new theater by providing a forum to explore the process of creating dramatic work.

To learn more about plays written by Playwrights’ Platform members, books of plays featured in past festivals are available on Amazon.com.
