GYM playwrights are given various resources to help further their work. These resources include rehearsal space, collaboration with a director to assist the playwright, marketing and public events supported by the theatre. The GYM's goal is to nurture new work in a safe environment and provide the "exercise" equipment needed to develop new plays by these Cleveland-area writers.
