What People Are Saying
"I have been involved with PWM since 1992. The organization answers any request with one word. YES. Because of that yes, many of us find a home for our projects. Playwrights, Directors, Creators, Companies, and many more. And so, thank you to PWM for giving us all it has and more."
— Micheline Chevrier, Artistic Director of Imago Théâtre & Director
"Since 1998, I have benefited from playwriting and translation units, workshops, and countless table reads and dramaturgical sessions offered by PWM. I would not have the incredible collaborators I have, nor the body of work I have produced, without the support and community that PWM has provided."
— Alexis Diamond, Playwright & Translator
"Playwrights spend most of their time alone in front of a computer screen in dialogue with fictitious characters. Creating a space like the Glassco Translation Residency where we can share and exchange our ideas is thus infinitely precious. "
— Pascal Brullemans, Playwright
