Playwrights Welcome

We are proud to take part in Playwrights Welcome, a program which offers unsold tickets to professional playwrights on the day of a performance, free of charge. To receive a ticket through Playwrights Welcome at The Coterie, writers are asked to present their Dramatists Guild membership card to the box office 10 minutes prior to show time. One complimentary rush ticket will be offered to each eligible writer based on availability.

Playwrights Welcome is a new program developed for Dramatists Guild of America members by Samuel French along with Dramatists Play Service, Dramatic Publishing, Music Theatre International, Playscripts and Rodgers and Hammerstein. The goal is simple: to provide free access to theatre for playwrights, composers and lyricists. We are invested in the success and artistic health of our industry’s writers, and by extension the vibrancy of the American theatre. We’re also aware that attending theatre is an integral part to how writers learn their craft and grow as artists.
