Padua Playwrights was founded in 1978 by Murray Mednick and five other playwrights, including Sam Shepard and Maria Irene Fornes. They converged on the old Padua Hills estate and given free reign to re-investigate their creativity, developing writing exercises for the morning, rehearsing in the afternoon, and presenting the results in the evening. Under Mednick's artistic direction, the Festival and Workshop became a model that has had a lasting impact on American theater. In 2001, under the new artistic direction of Guy Zimmerman, Padua Playwrights became a production company mounting regular seasons of new work. See what we are all about!
