We are returning to our theater with presentations of the four projects generated in our 2019-2021 Writer Director Lab, which is Co-Chaired by playwrights William Burke and Jackie Sibblies Drury.
From September 24–October 17, Keenan Hurley & Kedian Keohan, Nia Farrell & Talia Paulette Oliveras (aka Ta-Nia), Kate Moore Heaney & Divya Mangwani, and Jeesun Choi & Bryn Herdrich will share in-process showings of their new works.
Project Number One was initially launched in 2020 as a job creation program in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and record unemployment in our field. It was also an experiment in prioritizing living wages for artists, even when faced with extraordinary challenges.
As theaters across the City reopen, the transformative experience of Project Number One will continue! Abigail Jean-Baptiste and Kimie Nishikawa will join us as 2021/2022 Project Number One Artists, receiving a salary equivalent to the average staffer at Soho Rep: $1,250 per week plus health insurance.
In addition to providing ongoing staff roles for artists, we are excited about new ways in which Project Number One will evolve and expand during this time of cultural and civic recovery. We will be announcing our plans in just a few weeks!
Soho Rep is a civic theater that produces ambitious, innovative new works by radical theatermakers that go on to future productions around the world.
