Playwrights Welcome

Playwright Welcome

Playwrights Welcome is a new program developed for Dramatists Guild of America Members by Samuel French along with Dramatists Play Service, Dramatic Publishing, Music Theatre International, Playscripts and Rodgers and Hammerstein. The goal is simple: to provide free access to theatre for playwrights, composers and lyricists. We are invested in the success and artistic health of our industry’s writers, and by extension the vibrancy of the American theatre. We’re also aware that attending theatre is an integral part to how writers learn their craft and grow as artists.

Roundabout Theatre Company is proud to take part in Playwrights Welcome. To receive a ticket through Playwrights Welcome at our theatre, please sign up using the form on this page to be notified of ticket opportunities. When seats are available, you will receive an email with a link to a form to request your ticket. All offers are subject to availability.
