All IRT patrons attending public performances must continue to show a photo ID and proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR test (administered no more than 72 hours prior to the performance), in addition to wearing a mask. This is consistent with the commitments we have made with our artists, staff, and audiences to ensure their safety. 
 
For Steel Magnolias, we will allow concessions in the Theatre, and the balcony seating area will now be a mask-optional area. Please see our full Health & Safety information and policies on our FAQs page.

Write Now

Write Now is a national effort to advocate for playwrights and promote the development of new work for young audiences by:

  • supporting the work of emerging and established playwrights through a biennial national competition and process-focused workshop 
  • engaging a broad representation of the TYA field in an ongoing conversation about new play development 
  • creating a stronger environment for new work by fostering connections and collaborations
  • cultivating a common language of shared values about new work from the perspectives of playwrights, producers, community stakeholders, and academia 


Write Now is a proud collaboration between Childsplay and Indiana Repertory Theatre and is funded in part by a generous grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
