Living Room Series

web site

Now in its 24th year, The Living Room Series is a New Play Development program, which embodies The Blank’s commitment to developing new work by diverse voices from both established and emerging writers. The Living Room Series takes place on Monday evenings at the 2nd Stage Theatre in Hollywood between Labor Day and Memorial Day.

The Living Room Series offers a week-long rehearsal process for the playwright, director and actors to explore and refine the play before presenting it to an audience. The performances are minimally staged, with actors carrying scripts, and are a wonderful opportunity for the playwright to get a sense of the play’s full potential. The Blank accepts submissions for our Living Room Series (workshops of new plays) from June 1 – August 31 via Submittable.


See you on September 14th when the new 2015-2016 season starts up!

All performances begin at 8:00pm and take place at The Blank’s 2nd Stage Theatre, 6500 Santa Monica Blvd, Hollywood California.

For reservations please email info@theblank.com with your name and how many seats you would like.


Submissions will only be accepted from June 1-August 31 through Submittable. Each submission must include:
  • Playwright resume and biography.
  • A one-sentence summary of your script. For example: A young man and woman from different social classes fall in love aboard an ill-fated voyage at sea.
  • A brief synopsis of your play.
  • A character breakdown list (including ages and gender).
  • A brief artistic statement explaining how you feel your play would benefit from participating in the Living Room Series.
  • An outline of your play’s developmental/production history (if existing). If the submission is optioned by another company, please note this in the Development History document so that we may attempt to coordinate the LRS reading with the upcoming production.
  • A copy of your full-length play.
