Playwrights Local is pleased to announce that it has received an operating support grant from the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation.
This generous grant from the the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation will allow Playwrights Local to continue to develop and offer support for dramatic writers in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio. Playwrights Local is the only theater in Cleveland that uses 100% of its funds to support the development and production of Northeast Ohio playwrights.
The mission of the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation is to advance society through the performing arts, conservation of the world’s oceans, and alleviation of poverty. The foundation was created in 2011 to honor Paul M. Angell, and strives to embody the legacy of his compassion, ingenuity and industriousness.
Playwrights Local and playwright Christopher Johnston are proud to be among the recipients of the 2018/2019 Dramatists Guild Foundation’s Writers Alliance Grants. This grant provides $5,000 to the playwright and $5,000 to the company for the premiere of “Live Bodies for Sale,” a new documentary play on the human trafficking crisis in Ohio opening in November 2019. We can’t thank the Foundation enough for this amazing support! Click here for more info!
