Parks, a Pulitzer Prize winner for Topdog/Underdog, wrote one play a day for 365 days beginning in November 2002. Each week, a different New York company takes a turn presenting a week's worth of plays.
The Public Theater is in charge of the New York branch of the project. The plays are also going up in many other cities nationwide.
