New City Theater (1982-2005)
The New City produces published contemporary plays that are language centered, sociopolitical in thought, and often formally
experimental. The New City also commissions Seattle and national playwrights to make new plays with our artist company. In these projects, the playwright is given complete artistic freedom in the composition of the play’s form & content. The ensemble then works to serve and realize the commissioned writer’s artistic vision. Our 2005-2006 activity is devoted to playwright commission premieres. In addition to The Toaster by Rebecca Brown, the ensemble will premiere With a Dead March by national playwright David Hancock in the winter 2006.
