For over 50 years, the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center has been a pioneer in the development of new work and new artists for American theater. The National Playwrights Conference, and subsequently the National Music Theater Conference, were founded upon the concept that critically important work exists between when a work is written and when it advances into production. That step became known as “the O’Neill process.”

Underwriting the process plays an important role in ensuring that legacy.  Over  1,000 new works have been born at the O’Neill, many of which continue on to regional theater and Broadway productions across the US.
