Created as a program to help develop and provide exposure for the voices of a new generation of theatre artists, the Second Stage Theatre Uptown Series seeks to develop the skills of emerging playwrights, to provide early-career artists with the support of a major artistic institution, and to create new plays for the American Theatre. Each show has a limited rehearsal period, as well as a streamlined budget.
The series has helped launch and advance the careers of several up-and-coming playwrights, including Rajiv Joseph (Pulitzer Prize finalist 'Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo,' 'Animals Out of Paper'), Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa ('Good Boys and True,' HBO's "Big Love"), Adam Bock ('The Receptionist,' 'The Drunken City)' and Brooke Berman ('Hunting and Gathering').
Second Stage Theatre Uptown Series 2010 kicked off earlier this summer with the New York premiere of Michael Golamco's Year Zero directed by Will Frears.
