Playwrights Welcome

Playwrights Welcome is a program created to provide free access to theatre for theatre writers around the country. Developed for the Dramatists Guild of America members, the national ticketing initiative was created by Samuel French, a Concord Theatricals company, along with input from other publishing and licensing houses.For more information on this national program, please click here.

To receive a ticket through Playwrights Welcome at our theater, simply identify yourself to Box Office staff and if we have an unsold ticket, we’ll give you one. Easy as that! Please note that writers must present their Dramatists Guild membership card when requesting a ticket. Our Box Office opens one hour prior to curtain time.

[IMPORTANT: BPT’s Playwrights Welcome policy only applies to our own season of new plays; visiting theatres—who use BPT as a venue—have their own Box Office policies.]
