|Chain Theatre Playwriting Lab continues its commitment to developing new plays by diverse artists and underrepresented voices in the American Theatre. Since its inception, Chain has developed plays focusing on what unites us, links us together as well as what divides us. This is a highly collaborative process with a personal, intensive focus on the playwright, your story, and your words.
This program has been made possible with the support of the New York Department of Cultural Affairs.
