  • Residency 5: A unique program offering three full productions of premiere plays to a group of writers, encouraging the creation of a body of work
  • Legacy Program: A homecoming for past Playwrights-in-Residence with a production of a premiere or signature play
  • Launchpad Residency: An Incubator for early-career playwrights, offering holistic support, including two commissions, a workshop production and a full production over three years
