Black Box Fellowships
Boston Playwrights' Theatre serves the community and area playwrights by offering a virtual rent-free space to produce and workshop new plays. Each year nearly a dozen producers are granted a Black Box Fellowship to work in one of our black box spaces (the Odyssey and Walcott stages) at minimal cost (see Letter of Agreement for more details).

You will be contacted by email or phone by Artistic Director Kate Snodgrass regarding the availability of space.
A word on the selection process: Our goal is to facilitate the development and production of new plays. We look first at the calendar availability and second to the producer's statement as to how the play will be produced. Our spaces are in production nearly all year long, so some applicants will not be accepted. We encourage you to apply the following year.
Mid-year applications (especially for smaller events) are reviewed year-round.
