Read about The Pool in The Brooklyn Rail

New Georges’ Supported Productions program provides mentorship, resources and an institutional platform to affiliated artists producing their own work independently.  Our latest Supported Production is actually THREE!  And supports four New Georges artists: Susan Bernfield, Lynn Rosen, Morgan Gould and Portia Krieger.

Hope you’ll dive into The Pool!  We’re proud to support it, and happy to host it as the first production in our season as Anchor Partners at The Flea.

…a temporary consortium formed by playwrights Lynn Rosen, Peter Gil-Sheridan & Susan Bernfield to drive our own processes and  produce our ready-to-go plays!

Susan, Lynn and Peter’s plays (directed by Portia Krieger, José Zayas and Morgan Gould) will be performed in rotating rep at The Flea’s brand-new Tribeca theater, November 15 to December 16.  They are:
