Provincetown Players

The Provincetown Players was an influential collective of artists, writers, intellectuals, and amateur theater enthusiasts. Under the leadership of the husband and wife team of George Cram “Jig” Cook and Susan Glaspell, the Players produced two seasons in Provincetown, Massachusetts (1915 and 1916) and six seasons in New York City between 1916 and 1923. The company's founding has been called "the most important innovative moment in American theatre," in part for launching the careers of Eugene O'Neill and Susan Glaspell, and ushering American theatre into the Modern era.
