Comments from NMI Staff:

Est. 1980.  The mission of the Playwrights’ Center of San Francisco (PCSF) is to encourage and develop local playwrights and promote script writing, audience development and related arts.  PCSF was established as a forum for playwrights to get together and hear their work read.  Over the last 30 years it has grown to a membership organization that offers a number of successful programs that offer support and feedback to new and experienced playwrights alike and provides opportunities for actors and directors as well.
