Orbiter 3 is Philadelphia's Barrymore Award-winning, critically acclaimed producing playwrights collective. Founded by five playwrights and a new work director/producer in 2014, the collective is dedicated to forwarding a vision of Philadelphia as a hub for new plays.
Between 2015 and 2018, Orbiter 3 planned to produce seven world premiere plays by Philadelphia writers, offering the city inclusive, accessible theater that embraces risk, values local artists, and chases the playwright's vision.
At the close of its final production in the summer of 2018, Orbiter 3 will transform from a producing entity to a resource for the next generation of entrepreneurial theater-makers.
Orbiter 3 is James Ijames, Artistic Director Maura Krause, Mary Tuomanen, Emily Acker, Douglas Williams, Sam Henderson, L M Feldman, Emma Goidel, and Producing Associate Erin Washburn (not pictured).
