Up to four playwrights are invited each year to meet bi-monthly with the Goodman's literary staff and other cohort writers to develop their new Goodman commissions. Participants are awarded a $3,000 commission and are offered mid-point and final readings of their plays at the Goodman. To date, 45 playwrights have been welcomed into the program, which was established in 2010.

The deadline for submission is June 14 and final selections will be made later this summer. The FREE virtual reading of Lot 110 premieres May 29 at 7pm. Registration for this event is required.

In Nora Carroll's surprising and moving new play, Lydia and Karma journey to their sister's gravesite to perform a ritual: of healing, of remembrance, of connection. Today is particularly special because Lydia and Karma are able to share the intimacy of their grief without the performance of wellness. Kia's been gone almost two years, but her sisters still need some answers about her life on earth and beyond the veil.
