New Perspective’s 28th Season
Become a sustaining donor and help us reach our 30th birthday
Our 28th Season kicks off on July 1, 2019 and we have an exciting year ahead of us!
We are dependent upon and grateful for the entire NPTC Family and affiliated artists and audience members for their many faceted support: financial, attendance, in-kind gifts and services, morale boosts and more.
We have accomplished a LOT since our founding in 1991, always maintaining our mission and independence while surviving on a shoe string budget and thousands of hours of volunteer effort.
As we head toward the ripe old age of 30 we are one of the longest existing of the few remaining Off-Off Broadway (or Indie Theatres) in our own space in Midtown Manhattan.
PLEASE BECOME A SUSTAINING DONOR AND HELP US REACH THAT 30-YEAR MILESTONE!
HERE IS WHAT IS COMING UP IN SEASON 28!
This Season starts with the 11th Annual Women’s Work Short Play Festival running August 5-10, 2019. Last year’s festival achieved a number of milestones in terms of audience attendance and box office income, so we are hoping to repeat those numbers this year.
ON HER SHOULDERS is in its 7th Season and will offer four events at The New School celebrating female playwrights from the past — two in the fall and two in the spring. To date we have read 48 plays by 36 writers from the years ca955 to 1970 (our cut-off date).
This year we will also publish the updated ON HER SHOULDERS book of biographies and “Play In Context” essays featuring all the playwrights showcased so far (our first publication in 2017 included only the first three years of the program).
This Season marks 26 years of the Women’s Work Project! We began back in 1994 by accepting one or two resident playwrights a season and pairing them one-on-one with a director/dramaturg to develop a full-length script. We were in residence at a large black box studio at the time, so we could produce most of the plays we developed right there.
Since moving to our smaller community space, we transformed Women’s Work into two dramaturgically-driven LABS, one for short plays and the other for full-lengths. This season we are focusing on getting more of our full-length plays on their feet and fully staged.
NPTC will take a trip to Central New York for a production and workshops at Cayuga Community College this season, where we hope to stage one of the WW full-length plays.
We will also return to Bogotá, Colombia for the Alternative Theatre Festival in March 2020.
