Mission: Chicago Dramatists nurtures playwrights with the resources and collaborators necessary to realize new work and thrive as artists. With resident playwrights, a fellows program, varied workshop opportunities, and a collaborative process with other Chicago theatre companies, Chicago Dramatists is the center for new play development in Chicago.

The Chicago Dramatists theater is available for rent to emerging theater companies, with special priority given to companies producing world premieres and works by Chicago Dramatists’ playwrights.
