Business Details

Founded in 1981 by Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott, Boston Playwrights’ Theatre is an award-winning professional theatre dedicated specifically to new works for the stage. At the core of our five programs is our MFA in Playwriting, offered as part of Boston University’s renowned English Department and in collaboration with the School of Theatre. Our award-winning alumni have been produced in regional and New York houses as well as in London’s West End, and have garnered city, regional, and national awards including Elliot Norton and Independent Reviewers of New England Awards for Outstanding New Script. We believe the successful development, production, and promotion of new plays is key to continuing theatrical achievement in New England and nationwide, and we measure our success first by a generous dedication to our playwrights’ visions.

We count writers Russell Lees, Karen Zacarias, Zayd Dohrn, Ronan Noone, Molly Smith Metzler, Joyce Van Dyke, Steven Barkhimer, K. Alexa Mavromatis, Monica Bauer, Peter M. Floyd, Kate Snodgrass, Jaclyn Villano, Bruce Ward, Melinda Lopez, John Kuntz, and Sinan Unel among our talented alums.

We are located at 949 Commonwealth Avenue in Boston, MA, and produce under a New England Association of Theatres Equity (“NEAT”) contract. We are a Boston University program.
