Showcasing some of the most exciting voices in contemporary theater, The American Playbook features new plays beautifully recorded in audio format. Each recording is accompanied by an interview with the playwright, allowing listeners to experience not only the work itself, but also the behind-the-scenes ideas, actions, and innovations that enable a new play to take shape. This project aims to support the work of both established and emerging playwrights, while offering audiences (including literary managers and agents) a way to engage with new plays like never before.
