Manhattan Repertory Theatre has a Theatre play production programme in which they are seeking to help self-producing showcase work in New York City.
In their words: “Last March, we started our Play Production Program, where self – producing Playwright/Producers come to us with plays that they would like to self-produce in New York City, and would prefer not to do the work. So for a Production fee, we bring 10 minute plays, short plays and full-length plays to life at our theatre for 2 to 12 performances. Since March we have produced over 25 plays from playwrights across the United States and one play from a playwright in Moscow.
We are making it possible for anyone with a good play, and for a nominal production fee, to have their play produced at Manhattan Rep. We will supply the director, the cast, the rehearsal space, set and props, and we will bring your play to life in Midtown Manhattan where one can invite friends, family, and more to come and see it. And it won’t cost an arm and a leg!”
