We feel as though there are many worthy plays by gifted playwrights from diverse backgrounds that deserve a broader audience. The first barrier to seeing more work from culturally diverse playwrights on local stages is becoming more familiar with great plays by culturally diverse playwrights. We feel as though this group is a great first step towards increasing awareness of such plays.

The NHT group will be comprised of a group of artists who will meet once a month to read plays written by playwrights who self-identify as members of a marginalized group. Examples of «marginalized» people for the purposes of this group consist of people of colour, disabled people, and LQBTQ people. The group will, of course, operate under an inclusive, intersectional lens and aim for gender parity (half of the selected plays will be written by men, half by women.) We will also aim for no more than 60% of the selected plays to have been written by people of colour.

NHT is like a book club for plays by diverse artists. Every month, a different, predetermined NHT group member will present a play by a diverse playwright. The presenting member will take the lead on casting, making a PDF copy of the script available, and assigning roles. Members interested in joining need only indicate they will be attending on this event page.
