Why do we sacrifice so much energy for our art?...to learn to break down the barriers which surround us and to free ourselves from the breaks which hold us back, from the lies about ourselves which we manufacture daily for ourselves and for others; to destroy the limitations caused by our ignorance or lack of courage; in short, to fill the emptiness in us:
to fulfill ourselves.
who are we?
Scriptd is a theatre subscription and community devoted to celebrating great plays. We believe that theatre should be accessible to everyone -- no matter your zip code, income, or background. We believe that non-profit theatres are vital to our cultural landscape. As we seem more and more disconnected and divided from one another, theatre is a unique experience that can help us connect with our shared humanity.
Each month we highlight the work of daring playwrights confronting their truth on the page and stage. The work of diverse playwrights is often underrepresented in our communities, and so we make it our mission to select works that are diverse in authorship and perspective.
We believe in the power of theatre to change and enrich lives. At the front lines are hundreds of non-profit theatres all across the country. Every month we partner with a featured non-profit theatre and donate 5% of our profit.

it's nice to meet you
Hi there! I'm Joshua, the founder of Scriptd. Scriptd is born out of a need for connection and discovery, and a desire to make a greater impact. By day I work as a non-profit fundraiser for an arts organization. In college I studied theatre directing, and several years out of school, I find myself feeling disconnected from this passion.
That's why I created Scriptd. It's my hope that we can form an online community connected by theatre. Together, we can discover and discuss contemporary plays and celebrate great art happening all across the country - in cities large and small. Every membership will support non-profit theatres and artists exploring creative boundaries and striving to engage with communities in new ways.
I hope you'll join me on this journey...I can't wait to read a play with you. If you ever have any questions or ideas, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
