Founded in 1997, Page 73 Productions has made a name for itself as a home for the development and production of new work by early-career playwrights. It seeks out untried playwrights who are yet to be produced and recognized in New York City and ushers their work from first draft to production-ready script. Page 73’s developmental programs are carefully designed to give early-career playwrights the tools and resources to ready their work for production opportunities. Page 73 is a crucial stepping stone at a critical, early point in a writer’s career.
Each year, Page 73 offers four primary programs: a New York City or world premiere production of a new play by an emerging playwright; the year-long P73 Playwriting Fellowship which provides cash, development and career support to one writer annually; a week-long summer residency program on the Yale University campus to four or five playwrights; and Interstate 73, a writing group that consists of six to seven playwrights.
