About: View in admin

The Play Company develops and produces adventurous new plays, from the U.S. and abroad, to engage New Yorkers in a dynamic global practice of contemporary theatre and expand the American repertoire. Our singular international programming reflects and responds to our diverse New York City home, and to the globally connected way people live now. We are committed to producing works of significant artistic achievement and substance that would not otherwise be seen, and to providing artists with thoughtful, meaningful support and encouragement to reach for and realize their visions. Our programming is driven by what is going on in the world around us, exploring the ideas, events and issues of our time through the intimate, personal live theatre experience. We maintain affordable ticket prices to make PlayCo accessible and welcoming to the broadest audience possible.
