Founded in 2005 by Lowry Marshall and newly under the direction of Artistic Director Kenneth Prestininzi, Brown/Trinity Playwrights Repertory Theatre was established to meet the need of emerging playwrights to develop new work in a relaxed and creative atmosphere. Brilliant emerging writers who are already developing a national reputation are invited to Brown for six weeks each summer. Working with this carefully assembled company of gifted professional actors and directors, playwrights are able to be deeply engage in the production process — attending rehearsals daily, shaping and refining their texts as each new play is born.
The company is an extraordinary ensemble of young theatre professionals, augmented by seasoned alumni performers and supported by the young artists-in-training who make up the Apprentice and TheatreBridge Companies. Brown alumni playwrights and other established American dramatists gather at Brown each summer to showcase their new works. The result is some of the most imaginative and adventurous theatre to be seen anywhere in America.
