Pg 2: The Farm (We Grow Theater!)'s history of commissioning and long-term commitment to the development of new plays and musicals began in June 2019. The pandemic didn't stop us! Along the way, over 140 talented writers, actors, and directors have been enlisted in our mission to create new content for the American stage. Aspiring playwrights were recommended to us by trusted professionals and we began by reading and critiquing their desired storylines, setting deadlines, asking for rewrites over and over again. We asked talented performers to perform for the benefit of the writer (and a few friends). And then we waited for yet another rewrite.
(Note: We are not accepting new projects at this time.) continued on the next page...
