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 and brought it to adventurous audiences through productions and educational programs. 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. 

This summer marks the 30th year of this remarkable partnership as NYTW artists spend this August at Dartmouth. Over those three decades, dozens of works have been workshopped and developed at Dartmouth, including Rent, The Laramie Project, Quills, An Iliad and Hadestown; and participants have included Denis O'Hare, Sharon Washington, Doug Wright, Dael Orlandersmith, Anaïs Mitchell, Ed Sylvanus Iskandar, Rachel Chavkin, Jeremy O. Harris, Martyna Majok and Ayad Akhtar.

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.
