Connecticut Theatre Exchange (CTX) exists to bring together theatre artists from various backgrounds and identities to support their process of developing new projects and new skills in a nurturing environment that is both accessible and affordable.

We do this by:

  • Offering residencies for playwrights and screenwriters and their teams in various forms of development 
  • Providing low-cost residencies to existing ensembles to experience an uninterrupted and deeper developmental rehearsal process
  • Giving space and time for professional artists to study new skills and new ideas, contributing to their artistic process
  • Garnering resources for historically under-represented or under-supported populations and actively identifying ways to remove barriers to the CTX experience
  • Welcoming the public to free showings of new work and inviting curated feedback
  • Programming a variety of free or low-cost workshops of exploration of the artistic process
  • Developing partnerships with organizations that promote equitable development of creative work
