Signature is thrilled to introduce Residency Five, our latest and most innovative program.
Residency Five is a unique program that guarantees each playwright three world-premiere productions of new plays over the course of a five-year residency. This is the first program of its kind in the American theatre; going far beyond the traditional commissioning or workshop models, Residency Five will enable a diverse community of playwrights to build bodies of work. Residency Five playwrights receive a significant cash award, full 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.
