Moxie Arts NY is thrilled to present the first performance of The Moxie Commission! Join us live on March 26th at 8pm ET, or stream on-demand through Monday, March 29th.
The Moxie Commission is a new program which takes our fourth season virtual! Moxie has commissioned three playwrights to each write three short plays over the course of 2021. We've assembled an incredible cohort of series directors and producers who will work with each writer over the course of the program. Moxie will present one play from each writer at the end of March, the end of May, and the end of July, for a total of three performances featuring nine world-premieres!
