PLAYWRIGHTS HORIZONS is a writer's theater dedicated to the support and development of contemporary American playwrights, composers and lyricists, and to the production of their new work. Since its founding Playwrights Horizons has produced numerous groundbreaking Pulitzer, Tony, Olivier and Obie award winning plays and musicals throughout its history, including The Flick, Clybourne Park, Grey Gardens, I Am My Own Wife,  Violet, The Heidi Chronicles, Driving Miss Daisy, Once on This Island, and Sunday in the Park with George.


Playwrights Horizons Theater School has been an integral part of fulfilling the theater’s mission since the studio’s inception in 1983. Senior staff and artists at Playwrights Horizons nurture an emerging generation of theater-makers, often serving as school faculty, guest lecturers, and production directors, while students have the opportunity to apply for apprenticeships and fellowships at the theater, as well as to observe production rehearsals.  These opportunities create an invaluable educational environment where students learn from and develop relationships with working theater professionals at the very highest levels of their fields.
