The VILLAGE PLAYWRIGHTS was founded out of the need of Lesbian and Gay writers to have a venue in which they could present their works without fear of being harshly criticized or dismissed because of their sexual orientation or gender identification.   The VILLAGE PLAYWRIGHTS meet at the LGBT Center in New York on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month (8 pm) and welcome all Playwrights, Screenwriters, Directors and Actors to participate in their programs.  The VILLAGE PLAYWRIGHTS take pride in critiquing works solely on their merit and not on their sometimes sensitive subject matter. This allows each writer to find his or her voice as a creative individual.  To speak freely is to be empowered.
