New Play Finland6.0
New Play Finland (UNO) is a long-term project started in 2016 by Theatre 2.0, an independent professional non-profit theatre company. The project is called UNO for short, from the project’s Finnish name Uuden näytelmän ohjelma.
Our priority in UNO is to support the Finnish professional playwright to strive for excellence. We set the stage for dialogue. We bring together playwrights, theatres and related organisations in fostering Finnish new drama. We help theatre professionals to develop their practices and to find productive ways to collaborate with playwrights, and to attract a larger audience for new drama.
Our aim is to raise the appreciation of Finnish professional playwrights, and thus ensure the best possible quality of new Finnish plays also in the future. We also want to raise awareness of new Finnish drama internationally.
UNO is funded by Kone Foundation, Ministry of Education and Culture in Finland and UNO Network member organisations.
