PlayCo: The World On Stage

PlayCo develops and produces adventurous new plays, from the U.S. and abroad, to engage New Yorkers in a dynamic global practice of contemporary theatre and expand the American repertoire. Our singular international programming reflects and responds to our diverse New York City home, and to the globally connected way we all live now. We explore the ideas, events and issues of our time through intimate, personal live theatre experiences. We maintain affordable ticket prices to make PlayCo’s work accessible to the broadest possible audience.
