Volume 1 of the play anthology launched in December 2013 with a capacity event at Drama Book Shop; it remains one of the shop's more popular collections, and is also selling worldwide on Amazon.
Plays should engage truthful storytelling, and The Collective's behavior-driven process and mission statement. For more information visit www.thecollective-ny.org.
