About Us

NYMadness is closing its seventh season on June 25th with Featured Guest Adam Szymkowicz.  This first season as a company in residence at The Kraine Theater under the Horse Trade Theatre banner has been one of our very best.  We’re proud to have written plays leading up to and immediately following the November 2016 election, giving artists a platform from which to shout, protest, celebrate and inspire.

Thank you to our audiences, supporters, Horse Trade, and our company of artists.  Without you, we would not exist.  We are ever grateful for your support and participation in this great endeavor we create together, the Theatre!  


For 2016-2017
at the Kraine Theatre:

with special thanks to

for making our first
season in residence




A very fond farewell…

Cecilia Copeland, Founding Artistic Director, is stepping down to focus on her own writing. Over seven seasons, she helped NYM grow from four presentations in a small studio to offering twice as many shows as resident company in a 99-seat theater. Hundreds of playwrights, directors, and actors created new plays and made new connections under her leadership. We’ll miss her on the administrative team next season, but look forward to continued collaboration with her as a company member playwright and cannot wait to see all her future projects!
