TNC nurtures and develops writers for the American stage.
TNC does only new work - all premiers. It produces a playwright more than once, as the writer gains strength over a period
of time. It does full-length plays, many with music and song and choreography. Each year, TNC produces between
30-40 new American plays by both emerging writers, established writers, and theater companies that have no permanent
home. Awards for past productions include: the Pulitzer Prize, 43 Village Voice OBIE Awards, 8 Audelco Awards, 2 Bessie
Awards, 5 ASCAP Awards, 10 Rockefeller Playwrights Fellowships, The Mayors Stop the Violence Award, the Manhattan
Borough President's Award for Public Service and Artistic Excellence in Theater, and NY City Council Proclamation
tribute to TNC's contributions to improving the quality of life in the City by its "rich tradition of bringing theater to people in
multi-cultural neighborhoods."
