ON THE STAGE:
In our ON THE STAGE series, we present plays at the end of their development journey. These plays are ready for the stage and all the trappings of a full production, and we hope that GFTF will be one of their last stops before a world premiere.
For our playwrights, ON THE STAGE offers a chance to see how all of the production and design elements come together before an audience, and after the show to interact directly with members of the audience.

OFF THE PAGE:
Plays in the OFF THE PAGE series present at the middle stage of their development process. These plays are ready for their first exposure to a public audience, with a lightly staged, book-in-hand performance focusing on the how the script works in front of an audience without yet integrating full production and design elements.
For the playwright, this vital step may often provide the first opportunity to receive feedback from a public audience, and frequently leads to pivotal development breakthroughs. OFF THE PAGE audience members have the chance play a critical role in the journey forward for the project.

AT THE TABLE:
Plays AT THE TABLE make important first steps on the path to production, and often the ink may still be drying on the most recent draft. Development on these plays focuses on table work, puzzling out challenging moments, and hearing what the words sound like spoken by actors. Likely, playwrights with plays AT THE TABLE will be hearing their words spoken aloud for the first time, and typically these plays are not ready for an audience.
