Since 2003, RLTP has supported the development of new plays by writers from Western New York. Twenty-six of those full-length plays Jon Elston have debuted in world-premiere productions on the RLTP stage. RLTP continues its commitment to new play and playwright development with its ongoing Regional Residency program. When a Playwright is selected for our Regional Residency program, RLTP commits up to a year of ongoing development support to their current work-in-progress. There is no charge to the Playwright. Regional Residencies are intended to support the Playwright’s personal goals for their project. Although RLTP maintains its mission to produce new plays by WNY playwrights, being selected for Regional Residency does not represent a guarantee that RLTP will produce the play in development. A selected Playwright may receive additional support following their initial yearlong Residency. RLTP will evaluate Residencies in progress to determine if additional support is possible.
Historically, RLTP has cultivated relationships with playwrights as far South as Jamestown and as far East as Rochester; now we extend our radius of interest an equal distance North and West. If you are a playwright living and working within the area illustrated above, RLTP is interested in your work. Yes, playwrights in Southern Ontario (including Toronto), RLTP wants to read your plays!
