Founded in 1997, Page 73 Productions has made a name as a home for the development and production of new work by early-career playwrights. We seek out untried playwrights who are yet to be produced and recognized in New York City and usher 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. Our mission is to offer a crucial steppingstone at a critical, early point in a writer’s career.
Each year, Page 73 offers four primary programs to early-career playwrights: 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 playwrights; and Interstate 73, a writing group that consists of six to eight playwrights.
Playwrights Horizons and Page 73's new musical follows a young artist at war with a host of demons — not least of which, his own punishing thoughts — in an attempt to capture and understand his own strange loop.
In Page 73's world premiere, six characters are brought to life by three actors playing across gender and generation, capturing father/daughter and mother/son in a family drama.
Told through a playful mixture of phone calls, voicemails, and live radio spots, Page 73's 'Today is my Birthday' is a new comedy about loneliness in the age of connection.
