Clubbed Thumb commissions, develops, and produces funny, strange, and provocative new plays by living American writers. Since its founding in 1996, the company has earned four OBIES and presented plays in every form of development, including over 80 full productions. Our plays range in form and content, but are always intermisson-less, 90 minutes or under, with no history of production in NYC. They feature equally challenging and substantial roles for both sexes, are questioning, formally inventive, theatrical, and contain a sense of humor somewhere in the text. We are committed to providing opportunities for women, and to improving the quantity and quality of women's roles and dramatic literature.
