Playwrights Local is proud to be the first theater in Ohio to join the national Playwrights Welcome program, serving members of the Dramatists Guild of America. This initiative provides free access to performances for working playwrights, composers, and lyricists throughout the country. Through this program, members of the Dramatists Guild may receive unsold tickets to any Playwrights Local production on the day of a performance, free of charge.

Take advantage of this benefit, contact info@playwrightslocal.org on the day of a show and request a seat. If space is available, arrive with your Dramatists Guild membership card and ID. Note that this program is for Dramatists Guild members only, and does not cover additional attendees. (Click here to learn more about becoming a Dramatists Guild member.)
