PROJECTS & RESOURCES
 


The NPA Newsletter – If a new play event happens in New England, it will be in this weekend email blast. Subscribe to it and send in your events.

Workshops – The NPA holds occasional workshops around New England on topics of interest to New England playwrights.

Guides – We hope to foster new play development by making it easier to connect playwrights with support structures and vice versa with two new projects which will each be free to download as PDFs and continually updated

  • The Official Directory of New England Playwrights – An upcoming companion to The Field Guide, the Official Directory will seek to compile every active playwright in New England into an ongoing directory. 

New England Monologues Project. Promoting playwrights. Helping Actors. Advancing New Work.

The New England Monologues Project has two main goals — Increase exposure of contemporary living New England based playwrights to directors and artistic staff & provide benefit to StageSource actor members by allowing them access to a database of fresh audition material

WRITERS submit a monologue here — to submit, writers must be residents of New England

ACTORS click here to access the monologue database — Get new, unique material. You must be a StageSource member for access

While you're here, check out Elle Borders & Brandon Green reading two selections from the New England Monologues database...

PROJECT ARCHIVE
 


Projects from NPA’s past that we may revisit and revive in the future...

  • The New England New Play Anthology (2016) — An anthology of full-length plays produced in recent years by prominent local playwrights, including Walt McGough, Melinda Lopez, Marisa Smith, Kirsten Greenidge, John Kuntz, Steven Barkhimer, MJ Halberstadt, and John Minigan. $25.00.

  • New Play Ecosystem Data Project (2012 - 2014) — We gathered numbers about audiences for new plays--how many people are actually attending these new plays and readings in Boston and New England? We can now more effectively set targets and evaluate the results of Alliance projects.

  • NPA Brag Sheet (2014) — New England writers are a prolific and busy bunch. The NPA will publish a list of annual accomplishments by our writers.
