Our Mission


RLTP is dedicated to the development and production of new theatrical works by Western New York playwrights, as well as presentations of esteemed modern dramas of outstanding literary merit. Our mission is to tell stories which are important to our community, reflect our lives, and reveal our common relationships and diverse humanity. We are committed to engaging a new and youthful audience in the Western New York community that will respond to a truthful and full-frontal presentation of our world in original and imaginative ways.

RLTP’s Emanuel Fried New Play Workshop is our in-house program for developing plays, playwrights, and WNY’s playwrighting community; it provides the local theatre community and the world with the next generation of relevant and vibrant playwrights from Western New York.

Our American Theatre Masters Series brings nationally acclaimed figures to Buffalo, inspiring our local artists and our theatre community, and exposing WNY theatre on a broader, national scale.

Most recently, RLTP has dedicated itself to consistently presenting theatre that is a more accurate reflection of Western New York’s broad multi-cultural composition, in order to engage the most diverse audience of discriminating theatre patrons possible, as well as patrons who may be new to local live theatre experiences.
