The Role Commissions Fill In A Playwright's Financial Health - An Outrageous Fortune Follow-up Through The LORT Lens

Kilburn, Katherine Lynn

League of Resident Theatres and playwrights were surveyed to see how the field has changed in relation to playwright commissions in the decade since the research undertaken for Todd London's OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE. This paper contains an evaluation of the number of commissions as well as the renumeration for them at LORT member theatres and suggests a new flexible model for financially supporting playwrights during the creative process.
