MANHATTAN THEATRE CLUB IN ASSOCIATION WITH ARS NOVA
THE WRITERS ROOM
Each year Ars Nova and Manhattan Theatre Club jointly select four playwrights to receive Writer’s Room Commissions. Commissioned writers come together to participate in a two-year program designed to encourage artistic risk taking in a supportive and sustaining environment, with an eye toward production in The Studio at Stage II, MTC’s 150 seat Off-Broadway theater. The partnership draws on each organization’s strengths and areas of expertise to create a unique, collaborative development program for advancing new work from commission through to production.
