See great plays and support the arts. From the comfort of your home!

Welcome to The Blank’s 3rd Stage: a brand new subscriber-supported Patreon channel where you can explore The Blank’s work digitally, including the 2019 Young Playwrights Festival. We already posted all twelve plays from 2019 YPF for your enjoyment, and in the near future we will add the shows from 2018 YPF, 2017 YPF and other videos from The Blank’s vast archives.

By becoming a subscriber on Patreon, you can explore our exciting world of new plays and discover new voices that will tell our stories for generations to come. For a very small monthly fee ($5 to $10) you can subscribe and navigate through the many delights awaiting you. That’s a bargain compared to streaming first-run movies at $20 for just one view!

And you’ll support the Young Playwrights Festival, young artists, The Blank Theatre, our commitment to new plays, and new ways of bringing that work to audiences.

BEGIN YOUR JOURNEY BY CLICKING HERE!

 

Unlock these and all of last year’s YPF plays when you become a subscriber to The Blank’s Patreon channel!

We look forward to exploring theatre in a whole new way with you!

The Future of Theatre is Here. At The Blank. On Patreon!

Stay safe and enjoy!
