For 50 years, Playwrights Horizons has been committed to the advancement of contemporary American playwrights, and to deepening the impact of new writing in the diverse communities of New York City and beyond. Every aspect of our theater has evolved from our belief in the playwright’s enduring power to help us navigate a complicated world, to bring beauty and complexity to the human experience, in times of joy as well as in times of uncertainty. We are so excited to welcome everyone back into our spaces soon and to share great new work with you both digitally and in-person.

Your donations are greatly appreciated. Tickets sales and other earned revenue cover only 60% of Playwrights Horizons’ annual expenses, with the remaining 40% covered by donations. The support of our community of donors is vital to our stability.

Donations may be fulfilled in monthly installments. Contact Eva Rosa, Associate Director, Individual Giving, at 212 564 1235 x3144 or for more information or for any other donation related questions. To donate by text message, text PHNYC to 44-321.
