Umbrella Project invests in playwrights and the viability of new work through advocacy, collaboration, and development.
Umbrella Project is based in Seattle, WA, founded by 3 Seattle transplants who have decided to make this city their home amongst the abyss of untapped theatrical talent that exists. We value the playwrights in this city, and the local artists who have the capabilities to bring their original works to life. Our goal is to use dramaturgical production to harness Seattle plays and raise them up from a first draft, and see these works through to a fully staged production both in Seattle and again outside of the city limits.
Umbrella Project has been a Shunpike-affiliated group since October 2015.
