The American Playwriting Foundation is dedicated to supporting playwrights both financially and artistically in an economic climate where it's almost impossible for playwrights to support themselves by just writing plays. The Relentless Award, as the largest cash prize for a new play in American theater, is designed to allow a playwright to do just that; be free to only be a playwright for a year. And The Relentless Reading Series gives our selected playwright another opportunity that has become increasingly rare in American theater today—exposure to a national audience.

Please help us continue with our mission of supporting new plays and playwrights.

Note: we are a tax-exempt private foundation.
