Oregon Play Prize

T|R|S seeks out thrilling new work from writers around the country. To these exciting artists, we provide developmental support through commissions, readings workshops and productions.

The Oregon Play Prize focuses this energy on a writer with deep roots in Oregon. Selected through a highly competitive process that gives our audiences and community the ultimate voice in awarding the prize, this writer receives a $10,000 commission and a production of their play.

The Oregon Play Prize was first awarded in 2016 to Steve Rathje for his play Signs.
