ABOUT THE BLANK

Our goals are to produce new work, train and inspire young people to pursue careers in theatre, and develop the plays that will be presented on stages around the world for future generations.

We believe the development of new plays is an essential component of a thriving theatrical community, both here in Hollywood and in the nation at large. The Blank is unique in that we offer opportunities for playwrights to see their works grow from a draft script to a fully realized Mainstage production. We attract the finest playwrights in America and are entrusted by them to develop their plays which will eventually be produced all around the globe. The Blank is one of the nation’s most important developers of new work.

We want to reawaken theatre as a national pastime, and provide our community with the notion that living, breathing windows into human experience are not meant to be reserved for the wealthy few, but are a crucial part of the cultural discourse and should be accessible to everyone.
