The three Boston-area playwrights will embark on a two-year residency at Huntington. Each playwright will receive grant money, take part in bi-weekly writers' meetings and have access to resources from the Huntington staff and facilities.
"The Huntington is committed to being a well-rounded company that produces the best work by local, national, and international artists," said Huntington director of new work Lisa Timmel in a statement. "The Huntington Playwriting Fellows program allows us to create thriving working relationships with writers at all stages as they develop their work for production."

He is currently in rehearsal for Phantom of the Oprah, writing his next musical, Peter Pansy, and at work on a surrealist adaptation of Lorca's The House of Bernarda Alba.
