LMDA is pleased to support our British colleagues in the first annual #LoveTheatre Day (November 18th). Follow along the official hashtag to see how theatres around the UK (and elsewhere) are opening up to their audiences. To see the full list of participating theatres, and a list of events, read the announcement here.


The Bly Creative Capacity Grant Team is pleased to announce that, after months of planning and consideration, the first round of grants will be awarded.  Please watch for notification via the LMDA website, listserv, Facebook, twitter and press announcements!  Stay tuned!

LMDA offers a stipend for a dramaturgical residency within a theater project, program and/or community that seeks an on-site dramaturgical presence but is unable to fund a dramaturg at this time. LMDA member dramaturgs are encouraged to approach theaters and introduce a dramaturgical role and relationship that would become part of an event within the upcoming season.

LMDA is delighted to be continuing our relationship with Fractured Atlas and to extend to all of our members the opportunity for a one year free membership in their Open Arts Network. For more information about what Fractured Atlas is, and the services they provide, please go here.

The introduction to the new The Routledge Companion to Dramaturgy is now available online. Check out the beginning of the volume that features articles from institutional, academic, and freelance dramaturgs from around the world.
