Residency Five
Residency Five

The first program of its kind in the American theatre

Launched during the 2012 inaugural season at The Pershing Square Signature Center, Residency Five guarantees each playwright three productions of new plays over the course of a five-year residency. This is the first program of its kind in the American theatre, and it enables a diverse community of playwrights to build bodies of work. By committing to producing three premieres during a five-year period, Signature seeks to support and enhance each playwright’s method of developing new work; the Residency Five program celebrates the path from the written page to a fully-realized production.
