Rattlestick Playwrights Theater

The mission of Rattlestick Playwrights Theater is to present diverse, challenging and provocative plays that might not otherwise be produced and to foster the future voices of the American theater.  Unique in its dedication, Rattlestick guarantees a second production to any playwright they take on, regardless of the reception of the first. Rattlestick is a multi-award-winning organization which has produced over ninety world premieres in the past 21 seasons.
