“The Ingram Charitable Fund is thrilled to make this opportunity available in support of new works for the theatre. I am confident that this collaboration will not only have positive contributions to the Nashville theatre community, but also the American theatre landscape as a whole."

- Martha Ingram


The Ingram New Works Project was created by Nashville Rep with the support of co-founder Martha R. Ingram to provide an opportunity for theatre artists to develop new theatre works while in residency at Nashville Rep. Past Fellowship recipients include Christopher Durang (Vanya, Sonia, Masha and Spike, Beyond Therapy),  David Auburn (ProofThe Columnist), Stephen Dietz (Lonely PlanetRancho Mirage), Theresa Rebeck (Bad DatesFever), and Doug Wright (I am My Own WifePosterity, War Paint).

Created in 2009, the program has evolved to include a New Works Lab for emerging playwrights. Lab Playwrights develop new works for the stage alongside the Ingram New Works Fellow in a yearlong residency culminating in the annual Ingram New Works Festival.
