Orbiter 3 seeks to free playwrights from the economics of the new play model in which theaters must often balance risk with commercial viability.
By ingesting this economic risk ourselves, Orbiter 3 playwrights empower each other to search the far horizons of our imaginations and see our wildest dreamings produced onstage.
