Thank you for your donations on #GivingTuesday and the surrounding days. We met our goal and received matching funds. Your generous donations allow us to cover our operating expenses and lauch the  first class of Tutterow Fellows.

Why is the Tutterow Fellows program needed?

• Provides an alternate path to success, other than an MFA program.
• Continues Russ Tutterow's vision to support unproven talent.
• Bridges the economic disparity between those who do and those who do not have access to new play development resources.
• Creates an unconventional training ground.

What about Resident Playwrights?

Our Resident Playwrights remain our core program. The Tutterow Fellows will enhance their residencies by creating more opportunities for dramaturgical support and discussion around creating new work.

Saturday Series

Most Saturday Series events are public readings of plays-in-progress, but other events include panel discussions and fireside chats with visiting artists. All plays are directed and rehearsed, but are presented with minimal staging. After each reading, audience members are invited to join in a moderated post-reading discussion.
