Youngblood is Ensemble Studio Theatre’s collective of emerging professional playwrights. Founded in 1993, Youngblood serves as the creative home for the next generation of theatre artists. Youngblood provides artistic guidance, peer support, regular feedback and a fertile production environment which allows our member playwrights to hone their skills and explore their craft. We also provide exposure to the public and the press, professional outreach to the industry, and opportunities for production and publication.

Plays by Youngblood playwrights have been performed at The Royal Court Theatre, Playwrights Horizons, Actors Theatre of Louisville, the Mark Taper Forum, the New York International Fringe Festival, the Vineyard Theater, the Atlantic Theater Company and Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, and have been optioned by film and television companies, including the recent release of Amy Fox’s Heights as a feature film from Merchant-Ivory.
