By supporting RLTP you support the development of new theatrical works by Western New York playwrights and the employment of local artists and technicians to produce them.

Our mission is to develop and produce plays by local playwrights and tell stories that are important to our community, reflect our lives, and reveal our common relationships and diverse humanity. Each season the Emanuel Fried New Playwright Workshop helps WNY writers hone their skills and bring scripts to life through readings and showcases.

Through volunteering your time or resources, becoming a sponsor or giving to our endowment you can help us continue to cultivate the next generation of playwrights, make theatre available to a new generation of theatergoers, and keep theatre alive for years to come.
