The Playwrights Project

The Playwrights Project is FST’s newest artistic initiative, employing 32 of the country’s top playwrights, sketch comedy writers, and musical theatre developers as full-time staff writers. The material generated during this time will be considered for future production in FST’s Mainstage, Cabaret, Sketch Comedy, and Children’s Theatre programs.
