Victory Gardens develops and produces new plays from its Ensemble Playwrights through readings, workshops and productions, and provides necessary resources to further cultivate their individual voices and craft.
Through their seven year residencies, the playwrights are involved in the artistic life of the theater. During that time, the playwrights also engage audiences throughout Chicago’s diverse communities and participate in Victory Gardens educational and community programs. After the residency concludes, the playwrights will join the Alumni, whereby they will maintain an artistic relationship with Victory Gardens.
