About the Ticket Supplier: Gloucester Stage Company

The Gloucester Stage Company was co-founded in 1979 by Geoff Richon, Denny Blodgett, and award-winning playwright Israel Horovitz as a "safe harbor for playwrights and new plays". During its first twenty seasons, under Horovitz's artistic direction, the GSC successfully realized its mission with production of more than 35 world premieres, 15 American premieres, and 25 New England premieres. Plays developed at the GSC have gone on to critical and popular acclaim on Broadway, off-Broadway, across the United States, and around the world. The GSC has received many honors, including numerous Best of Boston awards by Boston drama critics for outstanding and popular work, and, most notably, a New England Theatre Conference Award. Mr Horovitz was honored with Boston's prestigious Elliot Norton Prize for his work with the GSC.
