Ashland New Plays Festival is dedicated to bringing the best new plays to audiences in the Rogue Valley. We offer playwrights the unique opportunity to share new works with discerning audiences by providing them skilled directors and world-class actors under expert guidance from our artistic director and host playwright.
It is you—our members—who make it possible for us to continue our work.
Each year your membership provides support for our season by underwriting specific plays and the cost of facility rentals. Even more important, it allows us to provide stipends to the winning playwrights, actors, and directors, and to produce special performances throughout the year in addition to our flagship fall festival.
We believe ANPF is well on its way to becoming what Artistic Director Kyle Haden calls “an oasis for playwrights” but we can’t achieve this goal without your help.
