Playwrights
Welcome

Playwrights
Welcome

Developed for the Dramatists Guild of America members, Playwrights Welcome is a national ticketing initiative created by Samuel French along with Concord Theatricals' sister companies R&H Theatricals and Tams-Witmark, Dramatists Play Service, Dramatic Publishing, Music Theatre International, and Playscripts. The goal is simple: to provide free access to theatre for playwrights, composers and lyricists. We are invested in the success and artistic health of our industry’s writers, and by extension the vibrancy of the American theatre. We’re also aware that attending theatre is an integral part to how writers learn their craft and grow as artists.

Geffen Playhouse is proud to take part in Playwrights Welcome, which offers available tickets to professional playwrights on the day of a performance, free of charge. To receive a ticket through Playwrights Welcome at the Geffen, please contact the box office in person or by phone (310.208.2028) on the day of the performance you’d like to attend. Please note that a Dramatists Guild membership card is required to pick up tickets, and there is a limit of two free tickets per member. Available while supplies last.
