The Tow Foundation Announces New York City Theatre Grantees to Participate in The Tow Foundation Playwright Residency Program.

The Tow Playwright Residency program offers playwrights the opportunity to focus on their craft, gain experience and insight into all aspects of the nonprofit theater world and debut their work. The three theaters focusing on directors will work to train and support the careers and creative development of emerging directors. Ian Robles is a member of the 2023-24 cohort of The Tow Foundation Playwright Residency Program and his play Lío will have its world premiere on March 15, 2024 directed by Mario Colón back to Teatro Círculo’s East Village home at 64 East, 4th Street.

The Tow Foundation promotes expanded access to opportunities that improve people’s lives and strengthen society. Grounded in its decades of work in Connecticut and New York, the Foundation supports nonprofit organizations and visionary leaders to find and enact innovative solutions to persistent inequality. It works to ensure people can become full participants in their communities, achieve transformative and lasting progress, and develop approaches that allow everyone to reach their full potential.
