The Pittsburgh Playwrights Theatre Company is poised for a big future in the Hill District. In the next year, the organization will move into a new, dedicated space with offices, teaching and rehearsal space, storage and a 99-seat theater. But, theatre leadership says the move is about more than square feet, it’s about a commitment to the Hill District. The Pittsburgh Playwrights Theatre Company, which says the move solidifies their commitment to the Hill District, supports artists by giving them space for artistic exploration and expression while also fostering cultural understanding. Future plans include the Ground Up Theatre Training Program, an enhanced continuation of their efforts to train behind-the-scenes crew professionals.
