This year, Blue Coyote embarked on an enormously ambitious project.  As part of our ongoing efforts to encourage and support new theater voices, we invited six of our favorite playwrights to participate in the C.C.P. by commissioning them to write a full-length play. That's right, there are currently six new plays in development, six new plays that will get a produced staged reading, at least two of them in 2012! And we created the Coyote Commission Project Blog for the C.C.P. playwrights to share their thoughts and insights about the process, and anything else related to the craft of playwrighting.

"Blue Coyote Theater Group is one of a very small number of companies that has earned my complete trust in guiding me to stimulating, challenging, and exciting new plays and playwrights. They are true champions of important new dramatic writing, providing platforms for excellent writers who not only have unique and commanding voices, but also have something worthwhile to say."
Martin Denton, Executive Director, New York Theatre Experience, Inc.

"Blue Coyote is one of New York City's theatrical shining lights. As an audience member, I consider the productions of Blue Coyote to be cultural highlights in the "not-to-be-missed" category."
Jonathan Hollander, President & Artistic Director, Battery Dance Company

"What impresses me most about Blue Coyote is the way that they maintain their artistic spine while constantly bringing new forms and new artists into the mix. The material they choose is never predictable while at the same time you can trace through their choices central concerns about the way human beings connect to each other and to the world at large."
David Foley, playwright
