New York Madness (NYM) is a community for emerging and established theatre artists. The company was started by a group of playwrights, all facing the same challenge as artists new to New York – how to meet fellow theatre makers.

Going from page to stage within one week with eight short plays written in response to a theme, Madness events create a unique cultural moment for diverse audiences and offer playwrights, directors, and actors opportunities to experiment with new work and cultivate professional relationships in a collaborative environment. NYM is committed to giving early-career writers and directors a chance to see their work onstage in front of an audience; there are no auditions or applications to participate in Madness.
