CPH Roe Green Fund for New American Plays
Meet The Playwrights! Introducing Jessica Dickey
Jessica Dickey is an award-winning American playwright and actor most known for her play "The Amish Project," which opened Off Broadway in New York City at the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater to great acclaim from audience and critics alike (Helen Hayes Award, Barrymore Award, CAPPIE Award for Best Play, among others). "The Amish Project" continues to be produced around the country and the world, including a recent run at the prestigious Guthrie Theatre, and was listed by nytheatre.com as a play that should have been nominated for a Pulitzer. Her next play, "Charles Ives Take Me Home," premiered at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, and went on to be produced at City Theatre in Pittsburgh, Strawdog in Chicago, and Curious Theatre Company in Denver. Her play "Row After Row," received its world premiere with the Women’s Project at the City Center in NYC, followed by a regional premiere at People’s Light and Theatre. Her new play "The Rembrandt" (fka "The Guard") won the prestigious Stavis Award and premiered at Ford’s Theatre, then City Theatre in Pittsburgh, and opened this season at Steppenwolf, starring John Mahoney and Fran Guinan. Over her career Jessica has been nominated four times for the Susan Blackburn Prize and is a proud member of the exclusive New Dramatists.
The Roe Green Fund for New American Plays is made possible thanks to a generous gift from visionary philanthropist Roe Green. Her support of CPH’s new play development programming, including the Roe Green Award and serving as honorary producer of New Ground Theatre Festival, has made CPH a preeminent incubator for important new American plays.
