CLUBBED THUMB, New York City, received $13,500 in support of the development and production of new works by emerging New York City and/or Minnesota playwrights. Clubbed Thumb commissions, develops and produces funny, strange and provocative new plays by living American writers. It is dedicated to supporting the work of emerging writers and does so by commissioning new work, offering a range of developmental programs, and mounting full productions. It provides each writer the resources to fully realize the particular world of his/her play and actively fosters an ever-growing artistic community. Jerome support will be directed to New York City and Minnesota-based emerging playwrights participating in the SummerWorks festival, mainstage productions, commissioning program, New Play Boot Camp and Under Construction.
