The Play Company is an OBIE Award-winning Off Broadway company producing adventurous new plays, from both the U.S. and abroad, to engage our community in a dynamic global experience of contemporary theatre and expand the American repertoire. Our distinctive international programming enriches the diversity of New York’s vibrant cultural life. Our work reflects and responds to the globally inter-connected world in which we live.
Launched in 1999, PlayCo introduces plays and writers from other parts of the world, and produces American plays within a global context, to foster cross-cultural understanding and exchange. We have recently expanded our season from 2 to 3 productions, and increased investment in commissions and artistic project development. We are dedicated to developing a wide and diverse audience, maintain modest regular ticket prices, and have recently launched marketing and outreach initiatives to engage new audiences and deepen ties with existing constituents.
