The National Playwrights Conference lineup also includes #nowall by Benjamin Benne, Lockdown by Cori Thomas, Ruth by Enid Graham, The Forest by Lia Romeo, and Marvel-ous Monica; In Which Monica Lewinsky Is a Superhero Hell-Bent On Revenge by Sarah Tuft.

The plays, which are by a mix of new, mid-career, and established writers, were selected from 1,429 plays received through the O’Neill’s open submissions process. In the lead up to the conference, each play will undergo the O’Neill’s signature development process, employing professional creative and support staff, including directors, dramaturgs, actors, and designers.

Sarah DeLappe (The Wolves) and J. T. Rogers (Oslo) are this year's writers-in-residence. For more information visit TheOneill.org/npc18.
