The Old Vic to partner with the American Playwriting Foundation


We are thrilled to announce that we will be partnering with The American Playwriting Foundation to annually present a staged reading of the Relentless Award-winning play.

This award exists to serve playwrights and what could be more exiting for an American playwright than seeing their work read on one of the most storied stages in the English-speaking world, and to have the opportunity to work with the artists and staff of one of the most exciting producing venues in the UK, said David Bar Katz, Executive Director/Founder of The American Playwriting Foundation.

Established in honour of Philip Seymour Hoffman and his pursuit of truth in the theatre, The American Playwriting Foundation will have a ceremony on March 26 at the Cherry Lane Theater to present Aleshea Harris with the 2016 Relentless Award for her play, Is God Is.
