WordBRIDGE seeks plays

web site

Applications for WordBRIDGE 2013 open from October 15th – November 30th, 2012.
WordBRIDGE seeks bold, innovative scripts that illustrate potential, but are nascent in their development and able to profit from two weeks of intensive work in our professional laboratory. WordBRIDGE provides a safe, supportive environment that allows each playwright to engineer a unique process in consultation with a roster of compassionate, critical professionals and artists from a variety of fields that have included theatre, psychology, visual arts, storytelling, mathematics, music, movement and more.
