The Actors Theatre Workshop (ATW) is a non-profit theatre company and educational institution founded in 1990 by award-winning actor, writer and director Thurman E. Scott, whose mentor Stella Adler named ". . . the inheritor of the Stanislavsky legacy and of my legacy." This dynamic theatre seeks an experienced Literary Manager to lead new initiatives in ATW’s Literary Department, and support ATW’s overall mission to develop and present original dramatic material that reveals the issues we are grappling with as a collective community.
The Literary Manager must possess a theatre background. Areas of responsibility include reviewing submitted plays, outreach to playwrights, assistance with contractual issues, and helping to recruit and lead a team of volunteers. The Literary Manager will report directly to ATW’s Artistic Director and Founder, Thurman E. Scott. This individual must be an articulate, enthusiastic communicator who can work well in a creative ensemble.
