Powering The Playwright

Rain City Projects supports playwrights and their work in the Pacific Northwest. We develop projects to raise the profile of the playwright within the working theater community, and build relationships between theater artists and producers.


Black people matter. Black rights matter. Black lives matter.

As playwrights, we understand the importance of words and storytelling in shaping our world. We recognize that because of a shamefully long history of structural racism, some voices have been amplified while others have been silenced. We pledge to raise up these voices, specifically playwrights who are Black, Indigenous, and people of color. This pledge requires us to identify and work to undo racism in ourselves, our organization, and our community.
