“If you want to support a writer, produce the first five plays he writes.” – August Wilson

The mission of Rattlestick Playwrights Theater is to provide a positive, nurturing experience for emerging playwrights, to present diverse and challenging plays that otherwise might not be produced and to foster the future voices of American theater. Although there are other companies that showcase new playwrights, there are very few who can match our focus, achievement and the continuing support from a play’s inception to its final production.
