PlayPenn is an artist-driven organization dedicated to the development of new plays and playwrights. PlayPenn fully supports the needs of the writer and the demands of the play in an ever-evolving process within which playwrights can

engage in risk taking, boundary-pushing work.

As an organization, PlayPenn believes in:

  1. The artist as the fundamental authority in the creation of new work.
  2. Fostering artists and their processes by providing as many resources and removing as many obstacles as possible.
  3. A ferocious commitment to the collaborative process of our work.
  4. Seeking diversities in voice, theatricality, language, style, class and culture.
  5. Remaining flexible in our approach to our artistic and administrative processes, always looking for a better way to carry out our work.
  6. Contributing to the artistic and cultural landscape of Philadelphia, the region, the nation and the world.
  7. Executing all of our activities with honesty and directness.
