Page 73 Productions, Inc. will launch a new playwriting fellowship with a reading of its first fellowship recipient, Kirsten Greenidge's Yes, Please and Thank You. The reading will take place on Dec. 8 at Studio 1 at Manhattan Theater Club (311 W. 43rd Street, 8th floor, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues).

Kirsten Greenidge is a Boston-based writer. Her work has been read and/or developed at New Dramatists; the Mark Taper Forum's New Work Festival; Sundance Theater Retreat at Ucross; A.S.K. Theater Projects; The O'Neill Theater Center; and Playwrights Horizons. Her play Sans-Coulottes in the Promised Land will be presented as part of the 2004 Humana Festival of New American Plays, and will also receive a production at the Madison Repertory Theatre. Yes, Please and Thank You is "an enthralling and deeply moving meditation on what it means to be a parent, a child and a woman (with a capital W) in today's black bourgeoisie."

P73's fellowship makes a year-long commitment to a single playwright by providing production resources, career guidance and opportunities as well a $2,000 stipend.
