The Lucille Lortel Theatre Foundation (LLTF) is designing a new program to support and encourage playwriting in NYC. Lucille Lortel was a champion of new plays and new playwrights and this program would enrich her legacy of support and encouragement for the next generation of playwrights.

I don’t decide what I’m going to do.. if I read a play like I did Fugard which was done some time ago and like it there’s something that a play has to say to me and I don’t do with the idea of making money.
