Cincinnati Playwrights Initiative


New Plays, New Voices, New Talents

Cincinnati Playwrights Initiative (CPI) is a grassroots non-profit arts organization of Tri-State playwrights, directors, actors, and theater supporters dedicated to developing new plays written by local playwrights.  Cincinnati Playwrights Initiative is a member of the League of Cincinnati Theaters (LCT).  Since 1997, CPI in conjunction with the Cincinnati Arts Association (CAA) annually sponsors a series of public staged readings of new plays, New Voices Series.  CPI strives to provide a forum for playwrights to explore the possibilities contained within their work by providing a community of playwrights within which individual initiative can seek its fullest expression.
