New Plays. New Orleans.
Southern Rep Theatre is committed to the development and production of new plays and playwrights. Our program 4D creates teams of dramatists, directors, and dramaturgs in New Orleans to create three 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.
