Recent mentors have included Edward Albee, Edward Bond, Deborah Brevoort, Christopher Durang, David Grimm, John Guare, David Henry Hwang, David Lindsay-Abaire, John Logan, Kenneth Lonergan, Martin McDonagh, Dael Orlandersmith, Theresa Rebeck, and Sarah Ruhl. The thesis play is then given a full production. Third-year playwrights also complete internships in New York, regional and international theatres.
