Playwrights Welcome

Free tickets for Guild members! Dramatists Guild members are eligible for free tickets -- via the Playwrights Welcome program-- to Concord Theatricals' Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival, now through August 20 at the Peter Jay Sharp theatre.

To access this member benefit, please go to the Peter Jay Sharp theatre box office and present your DG member card. Free tickets to the OOB festival will be given out to DG members on each day of the festival, subject to availability.
The OOB Festival is one of Concord Theatricals' primary initiatives to work with the next wave of emerging playwrights. This week, at the return of the in-person festival, the top 30 plays are being narrowed down to 10-12 finalists, six of which are selected by the Concord Theatricals staff to be licensed for future productions and published in an anthology of short plays that will become the 47th edition of the OOB Festival series.
