"Companies tend to establish a reputation around the Horse Trade Theaters."
Rachel Chavkin, The TEAM

In 1999, the Resident Program was instated, offering an artistic home to a select group of Off-Off Broadway artists, pooling together a great deal of talent and energy while focusing on their individuality as independent companies. Based on each company’s independent needs, this program provides an artistic home through rehearsal & performance space, as well as administrative, marketing, and artistic support. It has provided the platform for many new playwrights to be published in several editions of Plays and Playwrights, Playing with Canons, and numerous monologue books - enabling some of these works to be revived around the country and the world. Resident Alumni have gone on to tour all over the United States and Europe, and are vital members of the NYC Indie Theater community.

A residency means you give us one Short day a week and we give you resources to make a show happen.

If you had rehearsal and performance space what would you do this summer?
