"At Rattlestick, we are committed to the creation, development and production of new plays. Our mission is to provide a nurturing experience for new and emerging playwrights, present diverse and challenging plays to the public, and foster the future voices of the American theater. We believe that the development of an emerging playwright's craft is best served by taking a play from the initial draft through rewrites to a production in front of an audience. Toward that end, we work with our playwrights throughout every step of the process, " describes the theater.
