New York Theatre Workshop

New York Theatre Workshop

New York Theatre Workshop empowers visionary theater makers and brings their work to adventurous audiences through productions, artist workshops and educational programs.

For 40 years, New York Theatre Workshop has incubated the work of visionary artists. The long-standing summer residency hosted by the Dartmouth Department of Theater and the Hop has been a platform for workshopping plays from the forefront of the field. NYTW artists are in virtual residence with us this August. Dartmouth Theater faculty and students are intimately involved in developing the following works in progress through workshop presentations and discussions: You Don't Know The Lonely One, a collage of monologues, stories and songs about loneliness in an ever-shifting world by Dael Orlandersmith, David Cale and Matthew Dean Marsh. WHAT THE HELL IS A REPUBLIC, ANYWAY?, a play examining how our American republic can survive, by Denis O'Hare and Lisa Peterson.

About NYTW 

NYTW's goal is to impact the field of theater and bring new work to mainstream stages. NYTW supports the visionary work of artists through residencies, fellowships and workshops — laboratories of experimentation. With a commitment to pushing aesthetic boundaries and amplifying new voices, NYTW asks what it means to be alive today and inspires audiences' new perspectives and understandings.

Every August, the company brings their work to Dartmouth for a three-week residency to develop and perform new works-in-progress by some of today's most innovative professional playwrights and directors. Recent Dartmouth residency projects have included We Live In Cairo, which premiered at Boston's American Repertory Theater in 2019, and Hadestown, which won eight 2019 Tony awards for its current Broadway production.
