Irish Arts Center Playworks Reading Series

web site

Irish Arts Center, a multi-disciplinary arts and culture center based in New York, is looking for two full length plays for our new Playworks Reading Series to be presented this September as part of our fall 2013 season. Plays should be original and include no more than 5 characters.

Submissions should connect to Ireland or Irish America in some way. We encourage submitting playwrights to interpret this particular guideline freely. The call is open to playwrights of all backgrounds.

Each play will be cast and rehearsed in New York and receive one staged reading in the Irish Arts Center’s 99-seat theatre.

Irish Arts Center is committed to sharing new and dynamic productions from Ireland and around the world, with New York City audiences. Recent playwrights include: Deirdre Kinahan (These Halcyon Days and BOGBOY), Pat Kinevane (Silent and Forgotten, in association with Fishamble: The New Play Company), Amy Conroy (I Heart Alice Heart I), Ray Scannell (Mimic, directed by Tom Creed), Roger Guenveur Smith (Frederick Douglass NOW), Donal O’Kelly (The Cambria and The Catalpa), and Gary Duggan (Trans-Euro Express).
