The program provides ample workshop opportunities and free or affordable tickets to a wide range of New York City productions. The capstone project of the program is the Hunter Play Festival, a week-long workshop with professional actors and a director which culminates in a public reading attended by agents, producers, and directors.
Applicants to the Rita and Burton MFA in playwriting are required to have a bachelor’s degree; they must submit two letters of recommendation and a full length play or a one act play of at least 40 pages, both as hard copy and as a PDF attachment.
