Three Commissions of New Plays by Charlotte Miller, Sarah Shaefer, and Jessica Dickey

We’re so excited to announce that Rising Phoenix Repertory and Weathervane Productions have commissioned new plays from three female playwrights–Charlotte Miller, Jessica Dickey, and Sarah Shaefer–which will each be produced over the next two seasons. In championing new work by women writers, Rising Phoenix Rep and Weathervane are establishing extremely rare long form collaborations–from commission to production–with a firm commitment to mount the plays before having seen a word. Another unique feature of the commissions is that they are company-based–each play will feature actors from Rising Phoenix Repertory’s company, and its artistic director, Daniel Talbott, will direct all three plays. We hope you can come see the plays in 2015 and 2016, and happy almost new year! The RPR gang 🙂
