What's Happening!

  • ANNOUNCING THE 2018/2019 DIRECTING FELLOWS

    We are excited to introduce you to the incoming cohort of Directing Fellows: Tara Ahmadinejad, Sarah Blush and Kate Eminger. 

     

    This fall they’ll develop plays by Sarah Einspanier, Amina Henry and Bryna Turner with student actors from Playwrights Horizons Theater School, and in January we’ll present those plays with professional casts at our fourth-annual WINTERWORKS.

  • THANK YOU FOR MAKING IT A GREAT SUMMERWORKS

    We are exceptionally proud of the work we put out over the last seven weeks. Thank you to the over 150 artists, staff and interns who made it happen, and to the over 3,300 people who came to see a show this summer.

     

    We were also excited to introduce you to the plays of our early-career writers’ group throughout the festival, as well as the work of Chris Brown (Summerworks’s Master Electrician of many years) whose drawings of the East Village filled the lobby gallery. (Check out his work HERE and contact him to buy something!)
