NYCPlaywrights Play of the Week seeks submissions

Beginning in June 2012, NYCPlaywrights will embark on a new project - The Play of the Week.

NYCPlaywrights has been running its Play of the Month project since April 2011, and it's been tough to only pick one script per month from all the good scripts submitted. The Play of the Week project will give many more writers a chance to get a public reading of their work.

Four plays will be selected during each submission period, and then video-recorded readings of the plays will be posted online, one week at a time, during the following month.

The first submission period is Monday, June 4, 2012 @12:00 AM to Sunday, June 10, 2012 @11:59 AM

The mission of NYCPlaywrights, from the beginning, has been to provide script-in-hand readings as a good way for playwrights to get a sense of whether their play is working or not. The ultimate goal of any play, of course, is a full production. Playwrights should think of Play of the Week as a learning tool.

Originally plays were read in a room to a limited number of NYCPlaywrights meeting attendees. Thanks to the Internet, the plays will be available to a world-wide audience.

In addition to watching a script-in-hand reading, many playwrights feel it is beneficial to get verbal feedback on their work. Playwrights have an opportunity to allow visitors to the Play of the Week web site to comment on their play readings.
