Founded by playwright Darrel Alejandro Holnes, the Greater Good Commission offers mini grants to Latinx playwrights to write short plays, innovative in form, that reflect the times. The Commission’s mission is to help sustain Latinx playwrights and to support their contributions to American Theater. The commission’s inaugural round will focus on Afro/Black-Latinxidentifying playwrights, and this year’s selection committee chose five women playwrights. The inaugural plays will be presented at the 2020 Greater Good Theater Festival by the Latinx Playwrights Circle (LPC) and Pregones Theater/PRTT. The Festival will be streamed online, and the plays will later live in digital archives. Streaming date: Oct 15th 2020
