News   Pics! Jayne Houdyshell, Lynn Ahrens, Stephen Flaherty and More Celebrate New Work with The Dramatists Guild Fund The Dramatists Guild Fund hosted its annual presentation of new work by Dramatist Guild Fellows at Playwrights Horizons on Oct. 19.

The presentation featured excerpts from works by the 2014-2015 class including Naveen Bahar Choudhury, Camille Darby, Sophie Jaff, Dana Levinson, Kristine M. Reyes, Tim Rosser, Charlie Sohne, Mark Sonnenblick, Aurin Squire, Kathleen Tagg, James A. Tyler, Stacey Weingarten and Ben Wexler.

The works presented were developed over the past year under the tutelage of Michael Korie, Diana Son, and Andrea Lepcio as part of the Fellows Program, administered by the Dramatists Guild.

Each year, a select group of playwrights and musical theater writers are accepted into the nine-month program, which provides continued support and training through group sessions with theater professionals, one-on-one mentoring, and resources to build established careers.

The Dramatists Guild Fund is the public charity arm of the Dramatists Guild of America. Its mission is to aid and nurture writers for the theater; to fund nonprofit theaters producing contemporary American works; and to heighten awareness, appreciation, and support of theater across the country. Each year, DGF awards grants to nonprofit theatrical organizations that produce works by American writers, provides emergency aid to writers facing illness or other unforeseen circumstances, and supports numerous educational programs and writing development opportunities for dramatists.
