Many Voices Program

Jerome Foundation

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

I don’t know that I would be a playwright otherwise.
