We are five playwrights brought together from HB Studio and the Kennedy Center Playwriting Intensive and now based on New York City’s Upper West Side. We cultivate a fearless and encouraging environment fueled by knowledge of craft, open dialog, and the honest pursuit of each artist's vision.
The mission of the 9th Floor is to develop, support and produce the unique theatrical voices of our member playwrights; voices that are adult, deeply felt, and spirited. Plays workshopped at the 9th Floor have gone on to receive hundreds of regional and festival productions, publications, residencies and local and national awards.
All of our Writers and Actors are available for collaboration -- and our Core Member Writers are available to teach workshops -- in New York and beyond.
