Actors Theatre welcomes four emerging practitioners working in theatre to a complimentary weekend of new works and spirited conversation at the 42nd Humana Festival of New American Plays.

Meet the Winners of the 42nd Humana Festival Emerging Leaders Grant

The winners have been granted a ticket package to a Humana Festival weekend, which includes up to six world premiere plays, airport transportation on key weekends, invitations to events and panel discussions, and a Humana Festival gift. In addition, Actors Theatre will make efforts to arrange for a brief meeting with a theatre professional based on the recipient’s area of interest.

The Emerging Leaders Grant is part of Actors Theatre’s commitment to fostering and supporting new work in the American theatre, a commitment shared by each of these emerging leaders. Many thanks to all who applied, and please join us in congratulating our four winners!
