GLOBAL AGE PROJECT: GAP 2.0
Exploring the landscape of the new century
The Global Age Project seeks plays that directly respond to our complicated present and our possible future. The festival celebrates the diversity of perspectives, voices, and stories that make up the world today. After ten successful years of aiding in the discovery and development of over 40 new plays, Aurora's Global Age Project is evolving in a new direction. GAP 2.0 will move from a discovery program to a more intensive developmental process. Further details will be announced later this year. Thank you for your continued interest in this program.

"If every development process was run with the sensitivity and courage that the GAP Festival so effortlessly demonstrated, the American theater would be more vibrant, braver, more surprising, more relevant."
- Jorge Ignacio Cortinas
Playwright and director
"The Global Age Project resurrected a play that needed new blood, new breath, and new brain-power to find its best self. GAP gave me the right people, the right community, and a safe home to bridge this tricky, charged play into a contemporary dramatic and political conversation."
- Lauren Gunderson
Playwright, Steinberg Award Winner and 2011 GAP Winner
