'I think the goal is to write a good play. . . . First you just write a good play, and then you try to get it produced under the best possible circumstances. I never think Broadway is the best possible circumstance for a serious play.'

-- Lanford Wilson





TCG is a service organization representing nearly every significant non-profit regional theatre company in the United States. Since these theatres present the first major professional productions of most new American plays, it makes sense that TCG also publishes the annual Dramatists Sourcebook as well as the magazine, American Theatre.

As a playwright, you need the Sourcebook. And you should feel guilty if you don't subscribe to American Theatre, or at least read it regularly in the library. If you're not sure if you're serious about this business yet, then steal it from your friends who are. Here's why . . .

Dramatists Sourcebook

American Theatre Magazine

More Books and Scripts

TCG also publishes a number books [they'll send you a catalog] including interesting new plays and translations as well as volumes on professional theatre practice . . .




Here's what some of these regional theatres look like on the Web . . .
