At PIC we aim to change...

the landscape of new play development by eliminating the traditional gatekeepers and letting the playwright spearhead their vision with the support of our collective of theater makers. 

Mission

We are a collective of empowered theater artists centering stories that challenge the status quo through a highly collaborative, unique play development process. PIC artists (actor-dramaturgs, directors, stage managers, designers, and more) work with the incoming writer(s) to identify the most beneficial next steps in the development of their piece: a customized approach tailored to their specific needs. We are dedicated to building long-term collaborative relationships with all artists we work with, providing a safe space to experiment with new ideas and concepts on an ongoing basis. 

Values

  • Prioritizing scripts centering the voices of diverse identities- including but not limited to race, gender identity, sexual orientation, and age

  • Mirroring that diversity in our company of artists 

  • Elevating BIPOC representation in the New England theater landscape 

  • Profit sharing in a pay-equity co-op model

  • Creating a familial environment and network in which risk taking is encouraged and supported

  • Raising up locally sourced artistry and expertise 

  • Providing parent-friendly organizational practices
