New Play Development

Southern Rep remains committed to supporting new plays and playwrights.  

New Plays. New Orleans.

As Southern Rep returns to full programming after the pandemic, we will be bringing new plays to our audiences.  Our programs have included 4D, which creates teams of dramatists, directors, and dramaturgs in New Orleans to create new full-length plays every season. The Ruby Prize is our $10,000 bi-annual award to a woman playwright of color named in honor of Ruby Bridges, who showed incredible perseverance in the face of formidable obstacles.  Finalists for the Ruby Prize present their work in the New Play Bacchanal, a multi-day series of several staged readings open to the public for low or no cost.
