Theatre Communications Group (TCG) has announced the first round of the 2021 Edgerton Foundation New Play Awards. The awards total in excess of $1 million and allow 28 productions extra time for development and rehearsal with the entire creative team, with the goal to extend the life of world premiere plays after their first runs. This round is the first iteration of the New Play Awards since the cancelation of theatre seasons due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“After the most difficult year in our theatre field’s recent history, the Edgerton Foundation’s transformational investment in new plays has never been more important,” said TCG executive director Teresa Eyring in a statement. “The foundation’s support of longer rehearsal processes has always been valuable, but now, as our field reopens with a focus on safety and inclusion, that support is truly life-giving. Theatre artists will have a chance to breathe, and to take the time they need after the losses of last year as they make the plays that will knit our country back together.”
The first round of plays include: “We declare you a terrorist…” by Tim J. Lord at Round House Theatre; Refuge, co-created by Satya Jnani Chavez and Andrew Rosendorf,
PAPER CUT will be performed at Theatre 503 from March 2020 - April 2020.
