supporting stories - from page to stagE

Chicago Dramatists is a community of artists working together to create new stories. We could not exist without each other. Which is why it is critical that as a community we give what we can.

A gift supports Dramatists' mission to provide the training, space, and connections necessary to realize new work for the stage and screen by  keeping class fees low, tickets to public play readings next to nothing, table readings and other free programming for Resident Playwrights,  a roof over our head, plus employment of actors, directors, and other artists for our readings to co-productions.

To support over 3,000 artists per year!
