GREATER GOOD has been developed, and is being produced, with the support of important partnerships and programs. Company One is grateful for the work of these partners to bring the play to fruition, including the Mellon Foundation’s Resident Playwright Program, administered by HowlRound; the A.R.T. as both a development and production partner; and Company One’s PlayLab program, which has incubated Kirsten’s development process for the past three years through numerous workshops and readings.

Mellon Foundation Resident Playwright Program
Funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and administered in partnership with HowlRound, the playwright residency program places eighteen playwrights as salaried staff members in residence for three years at seventeen theatres in thirteen cities. The program has four main goals:
– To advance the state of playwrights in the American theatre by providing them with space, time, and resources.
– To influence the working environment of theatres by embedding playwrights in them.
– To help the field (including other funders) understand the value of embedding playwrights in theatres.
– To work toward an ideal of having writers become salaried employees of all theatres.
