PAGE 73 Productions - under the leadership of Executive Directors Liz Jones and Asher Richelli and Associate Director Michael Walkup - develops and produces the work of early-career playwrights who have yet to have their work professionally produced in New York. Page 73 produces at least one New York or world premiere by an early-career playwright each year that represents that playwright's first professional production in New York. In addition to its annual productions, the company also hosts production-oriented development opportunities that help usher the works of early-career playwrights from first draft to final script. Programs include the P73 Playwriting Fellowship, a year-long program supporting one playwright's creative and career development; "Page 2", an extensive developmental workshop; "Interstate 73", an annual writers group for 8 early-career playwrights; and a weeklong summer residency on the Yale University campus for 4 early-career writers.
Page 73 produced the world premieres of ELLIOT, A SOLDIER'S FUGUE by Quiara Alegría Hudes, directed by Davis McCallum (2007 Pulitzer finalist and prequel to Quiara's 2012 Pulitzer Prize-winning play WATER BY THE SPOONFUL), SIXTY MILES TO SILVER LAKE by Dan LeFranc directed by Anne Kauffman and co-produced with Soho Rep (2010 New York Times Playwriting Award); CREATURE by Heidi Schreck, directed by Leigh Silverman and co-produced with New Georges; JACK'S PRECIOUS MOMENT by Samuel D.
