Indie Theater Now, NYTE’s digital theater library, has been around for more than 3 years now; we’ve published more than 1000 plays there. But Indie Theater Now would never have happened if we hadn’t spent a dozen years publishing good, ol’ fashioned print play anthologies! From 2000 to 2011 we put out a new edition of our Plays and Playwrights series each year, followed up in 2013 and 2014 by the Cino Nights anthologies.
Many of the early editions are now unavailable, and in fact both Plays and Playwrights 2001 and Plays and Playwrights 2002 are about to go out of print. These volumes include early works by such seminal and influential indie theater playwrights as Trav S.D., Ken Urban, Matthew Freeman, Marc Spitz, Chiori Miyagawa, and Julia Lee Barclay-Morton.
Later volumes of the series introduced audiences to the likes of Taylor Mac, Josh Fox (Academy Award nominee for Gasland), Michael Lew, Michael Puzzo, Saviana Stanescu, Boo Killebrew, Chad Beckim, James Comtois, Crystal Skillman, Daniel Talbott, Chris Harcum, Mac Rogers, Nat Cassidy, Josh Koenigsberg, Joshua Conkel, and Richard Sheinmel and Clay Zambo.
Yep, we were the first to publish all of these extraordinary playwrights. And dozens more.
The Cino Nights books were curated by Daniel Talbott of Rising Phoenix Rep, and feature short commissioned works by such authors as Adam Szymkowicz, Jessica Dickey, Megan Mostyn-Brown, Brooke Berman, Dael Orlandersmith, and Keith Reddin.
You can learn about all of these volumes–including interviews with authors and lots of other useful content–at NYTE Small Press.
There are literally only 12 copies of Plays and Playwrights 2001 left. We want them to have loving homes.
