Why Get Involved?


Rattlestick gave first productions to young, unknown writers who now are household names, including Lucy Thurber, Adam Rapp, Halley Feiffer, and most recently Martyna Majok. Rattlestick, in partnership with Women’s Project Theater, produced Martya Majok’s Ironbound in 2016, Majok’s first New York Production. This opportunity transformed Majok’s career. Ironbound is now being seen by thousands of audiences around the country, and her subsequent plays have been produced at Williamstown, Manhattan Theatre Club, and Lincoln Center. Rattlestick took a risk on Majok when no other major New York theater company would.

Since producing Diana Oh earlier this fall, another artist that many theaters would not dare to produce, theaters in NY and around the country have contacted Rattlestick about bringing {my lingerie play} to their city and/or engaging Diana in other projects. This commitment to producing unknown, fiercely talented writers makes Rattlestick essential.

The Rattlestick community has gathered to discuss what Rattlestick means to them!

Stick Studies

Rattlestick’s arts education program,‘Stick Studies is aimed at connecting groups of NYC high school students with one or more shows in our Mainstage Season. In 2016-17, Rattlestick began a partnership with The Young Women’s Leadership Network (YWLN), a foundation established by Ann Tisch to support programs that empower students to break the cycle of poverty through education. YWLN supports a network of five 6th-12th grade all-girls secondary schools in NYC. Last season, we partnered with 11th grade students at the YWLN schools in Brooklyn and Queens. This season, we are working with the senior classes from the Brooklyn and East Harlem schools. Students will study the cultural context of Dael Orlandersmith’s Until the Flood and Mashuq Deen’s Draw the Circle. As they did last season, our teaching artists will work with the students by addressing all five NYC DOE Blueprint Standards in the Arts, before the students attend a dedicated student matinee. Following the matinee, students will have the opportunity to participate in facilitated conversations with the artists. There will be another in-class session after the matinee, which will involve writing prompts and the option to perform. This program will serve 200 students (100 from each school) in February 2018, culminating in two student matinees (one of each performance).
