Open Call for original unpublished Short Plays & Scenes for new reading series

web site

Open Call for original unpublished Short Plays & Scenes for new reading series: "Under Rehearsed"
The Reading series is intended to create new artistic relationships with Guest Directors, Playwrights and Actors as well as provide a fun and engaging night for our audiences.

This is a great way to create a working relationship with our company and for us to get to know your work. We are looking for playwrights interested in collaborating and creating artist & audience relationships.

Readings will be performed in a Bar or Studio, therefore we are looking for works that will engage and excite our audience, go well with a few drinks and allow for socializing and fun in between plays. Comedic plays in particular will be well suited for this series, but we are open to dramatic works as well. Each month will have a new theme that all plays will interconnect and relate to each other in some way.

Plays will be vetted by Literary Team and Ensemble Members.
We are looking ONLY for Plays that fit the needs and requirements of the Reading Series at this time.
