We help our writers. Award winning plays aren't born ready for Broadway. Even the best writers need long-term feedback and the chance to rewrite, hear and see their work read by great actors, critiqued by a varied and experienced team and then revised again and again. So... we pay for the costs of development through an extended period of rewrites and readings. We become the writer's team of dramaturgs, supporters, and critics. The writer grows, the script improves, and ultimately we all benefit with an amazing play or musical.
