Residency Five
Residency Five

The first program of its kind in the American theatre

Residency Five is an innovative program that guarantees playwrights three world-premiere productions over the course of five years. Going far beyond the traditional commissioning or workshop models, Residency Five enables a diverse community of playwrights to build bodies of work. Residency Five playwrights receive a significant cash award, health benefits, a stipend to attend theatre, access to Signature’s resources and staff, and like all of our playwrights, a place at the center of the artistic process.
