The Pool is a participant in New Georges' Supported Productions program, in which New Georges provides mentorship, resources and an institutional platform to its affiliated artists who produce their own work. 

Kate Cortesi, Brenda Withers and Emily Zemba inherited this pop-up company in 2019 from its founders Susan Bernfield, Peter Gil-Sheridan and Lynn Rosen, who had a vision for theater where playwrights take charge of their own processes and reach audiences without waiting for permission from the gatekeepers of institutional American theater.

We are honored to form The Pool 2.0.
