As part of our mission to foster the next generation of theatre goers and artists, the S&S is pleased to announce the S&S Emerging Playwrights Fellowship.
We wish to address the lack of representation for underrepresented communities, both on the page and on the stage. To help close this gap, we are seeking to support a LGBTQIA+ playwright. We seek playwrights who wish to write emotionally resonant stories for audiences of all ages.
