Our 2014 Writers Block Party made for an incredibly fun night and was a roaring success! We are so grateful to all of those who attended, donated or helped make our uptown soirée possible. Together we raised over $100,000 in support of our core programs dedicated to helping early-career playwrights along the journey of playwriting. Our first ever Paddle Raise brought in nearly $20,000 alone!
We were also thrilled to announce our 2014-2015 Page One Playwright and production, the formation of the Inkwell advisory council, and most exciting of all, the addition of the Alumni Production to our annual season.

My Mañana Comes
by Elizabeth Irwin
Fall 2014 at The Peter Jay Sharp Theater, 416 West 42nd Street
Plates in, plates out, we need ice, table four needs bread, your tuna tartare is up: this is the life of the back of house at a restaurant. It’s not a bad way for four young New Yorkers to spend their days, make their livings, and cling to their dreams – that is, until management starts to get stingy. But you can count on your co-workers, right? Right? Right?

Four disparate Americans journey to Paris in search of love. A mysterious symphony of speech and dreams unfold as their lives entangle in a web of paintings, opera, and absinthe.
