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.
