Wellsprings - New Play Program

Begun in 2002, Wellsprings is Six Points Theater’s initiative to find and develop a continuous flow of new plays rooted in the Jewish experience and illuminating the common humanity among us all.

We commission new work and accept unsolicited submissions from playwrights for world premiere productions. The theater works with playwrights from around the country to bring exciting new plays and musicals to the stage. Submit a play for Wellsprings consideration. P.O. Box 16155, St. Paul, MN 55116
