For further information and reservations, please call (718) 951-5000  X 2768. For directions to the venue, please visit the Brooklyn College homepage. Artistic Director Steve Ansell and Gi60: Live UK Edition will be announcing their play selections separately (and soon!).  For playwrights who live outside of the New York City area, stay tuned to this site for updates on live streaming the US event!

All proceeds from the Gi60: Live U.S. Edition go to a scholarship fund to support theater students at Brooklyn College. Every playwright who would like to attend will be offered one comp ticket, and we regret that we cannot offer multiple comps because of our fundraising efforts to help students. Tickets are $10.00, seating is general admission, and each performance will be filmed, edited, then uploaded to the Gi60 Channel on YouTube by early September. Congratulations, thank you for the wonderful plays you've shared with our terrific company of actors and directors, and we hope to see you at the event (reservations are STRONGLY recommended!).
All the best,
