The founding members are five playwrights brought together from HB Studio and the Kennedy Center Playwriting Intensive. We cultivate a fearless and encouraging environment fueled by knowledge of craft, open dialog, and the honest pursuit of each artist's vision.
Our voices range from the sharply-observed naturalistic to the outrageously theatrical. Our mission: to help expand and deepen each playwright’s vision. Plays workshopped at the 9th Floor have gone on to receive hundreds of regional and festival productions, publications, residencies and awards.
Our Writers and Actors are available nationally to teach workshops in all aspects of theater.
