Perseverance Theatre playwrighting initiative, in partnership with Cyrano's Theatre Company, is offering a commission with development support for a two-year
period of time to write and develop a new play. The goal is to develop a group of diverse new Alaska plays in a group that will include Alaska Natives,
emerging writers and writers who represent underrepresented voices
It is open to all who identify as Alaskan or have something to say for an Alaska audience. We encourage applications from Alaska Native writers who will
write for Alaska Native performers. Note: you do not have to be a resident of Alaska to apply.
If selected, Perseverance will provide:

-One 29-hour style workshop of your script
-Personalized script development schedule (you can keep your day job!)
