Nine upcoming productions are the recipients of 2019 Edgerton Foundation New Play Awards from Theatre Communications Group (TCG)—the third round of the award for the year. Totaling $415,000, the grant allows each show extra time in development and rehearsal, with a mission to extend the life of the show beyond its world premiere.

Among the recipients are three new plays that will be seen Off-Broadway in 2020: Eboni Booth's play Paris (Atlantic Theater Company); Hilary Bettis' 72 Miles to Go (Roundabout Theatre Company); and Martyna Majok's Sanctuary City (New York Theatre Workshop).

The Edgerton Foundation New Plays Program, directed by Brad and Louise Edgerton, launched nationally in 2007 and has since supported 430 plays at over 50 different organizations across the U.S.
