The New Voices Project

The New Voices Project was founded in July of 2012 as a reaction to the absence of new works in mainstream theatre. It costs a lot of money to rent space, pay artistic staff, market and put up a new work. The playwright is forced to give over their piece and make changes based on investors and not the structure or integrity of the play. The New Voices Project allows the playwright to give over their work to a director and a company of actors and see the play they have written brought to life. In this setting the playwright is able to work out the kinks in their material, and allow other artists to help develop the piece. Production values vary from staged readings to fully mounted productions. For more information or to submit your work please contact us at
