About Playwrights West
"At Playwrights West, we believe that one of the measures of a successful playwriting career is if your work makes a difference where you live. Whether we are writing for the next generation of theater artists as part of our Teen West program, putting on a mini-festival of plays that are so new that the ink hasn’t even dried on them, or producing world premieres of vibrant new works by our member playwrights, that is always our aim. Theater should create space for people to find common ground in exceptional stories by writers from their community. That’s why we say that Good Theater Speaks Locally." - www.playwrightswest.org
