When you walk into Merrimack Repertory Theatre, the lobby brims with paintings by local artists inspired by the current new play. You read that right. Current new play. Every play at MRT is a new play. Full stop. Ever since Sean Daniels became Artistic Director in 2014, MRT does all new plays all the time. In the last four years, they’ve done 28 plays (all new) and fourteen (half!) have been world premieres. It makes me proud of call MRT one of my artistic homes. Sean and MRT don’t just believe in new plays. They do them.
