Liberty Live Commission 2019-2020

 

From June 15, 2018 to September 1, 2018, Premiere Stages accepted proposals for plays from New Jersey playwrights that explored a historical event or events that provide compelling ideas for dramatic storytelling. Joe Sutton has been selected as the recipient of the 2019-20 Liberty Live Commission. His play will focus on Paul Robeson and takes place in the weeks leading up to his valedictory address at Rutgers University.

NJPAC Stage Exchange

 

Premiere Stages has partnered with the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) to support the NJPAC Stage Exchange, a program connecting New Jersey writers to theaters in their state for the creation of original dramatic work. Premiere Stages’ Stage Exchange commission is Brick City by Nicole Pandolfo, which explores the choices two teenagers at an underfunded public high school in Newark face.
