Many Voices Program

Jerome Foundation

Supported by a grant from the Jerome Foundation, the Playwrights' Center's Many Voices Program is designed to increase access and diversity in the contemporary theater, both locally and nationally, through financial support, education, and opportunities to develop new work with theater professionals.

"The Playwrights' Center has been an artistic home for me in numerous ways, and I cannot stress how wonderful the partnership of the Jerome Foundation with the PWC is. Both of you have funded and nurtured two years of immense growth in my artistry. I've only gotten bolder and better as a playwright. I've become more vulnerable and willing to explore and share what my unique identity has taught me about life and the world."
