The Cherry Lane Alternative Theatre

CHERRY LANE THEATRE, New York City, received a two-year grant of $52,000 in support of the Mentor Project. Cherry Lane's mission is to perpetuate its legacy of artistic freedom, exploration, and camaraderie, by providing a haven for emerging playwrights and by breathing fresh life into classics. The Mentor Project is the cornerstone of the Theatre's New Play Development Program. Through a nomination and competitive review process, the Theatre identifies emerging playwrights and pairs them with highly experienced and respected playwright mentors. Over the course of a season, the emerging playwright and the mentor are in regular contact with one another. Playwrights are given production teams and directors who will best advance their plays. There are first draft readings, public staged readings, rehearsals and workshop productions. Mentors for 2004 are Ed Bullins, A. R. Gurney and Michael Weller.
