SPACE on Ryder Farm is a place where artists and activists come to do their most important work. In our first six seasons, SPACE has hosted over 1000 residents, created a highly sought after playwrights’ group called The Working Farm, held symposia on the intersection of creativity and activism, piloted a program that provides childcare for resident artists, developed initiatives that integrate SPACE’s programming and the organic farming operation and nurtured 40 young professionals through our intern program. 

We are thrilled for our artist alumni who are receiving productions of their SPACE-developed plays. The following plays were developed at SPACE and are appearing Off-Broadway in NYC this upcoming season.
