Primary Stages is dedicated to inspiring, supporting, and sharing the art of playwriting. We operate on the strongly held belief that the future of American theater relies on nurturing playwrights and giving them the support they need to fully realize their vision. Since our founding in 1984, we have produced more than 135 new plays. Whether you’ve been with us from the beginning or are just joining us on our journey, ours is a passionate community of artists, students, and patrons. This is your Off-Broadway Home.
