Playwrights Welcome

Playwrights Welcome is a program created to provide free access to theater for theater writers around the country. Developed for the Dramatists Guild of America members, the national ticketing initiative was created by Samuel French, a Concord Theatricals company, along with input from other publishing and licensing houses. For more information on this national program, please visit concordsho.ws/PlaywrightsWelcome.
