Edgerton Conference Subsidies


Through the generosity of the Edgerton Foundation, TCG is thrilled to offer conference subsidies to playwrights whose work has been supported by the Edgerton Foundation’s New American Play Awards. Forty playwrights will each receive up to $1,000 in reimbursements for travel and lodging. In conjunction with this opportunity, TCG is offering a special registration rate of $125 for all Edgerton Foundation awardees. This covers all conference sessions, coffee breaks, an opening night reception and lunch on two of the days.
