2017 Alley All New Festival
February 3 - 12

As we enter the next era, the Alley Theatre expands its commitment to the playwright and to produce more world premieres with the launch of Alley All New, a major new works initiative.

Alley All New is comprised of a variety of public and in-house programs designed to support playwrights and cater to the needs of each new project. We plan to produce more world premieres, commission new plays, and engage and support playwrights year round.

The inaugural Alley All New Festival in January/February 2016 included 20 performances, eight writers, six directors and 24 actors over the course of two weekends. More than 700 festival attendees filled our newly renovated building- providing strong energy, valuable feedback and lively participation.

If you wish to engage and learn more about our process in developing new work, join our exclusive Alley All New Insider group, e-mail us at Please include your name, e-mail, and phone number so that we can reach you when needed. Opportunities may come up quickly and we want to be able to let you know about them right away.

The audience is a crucial part of the development of any new work and we look forward to your participation in this exciting process.
