March Forth Summer Reading Salon

web site

We here at March Forth love good stories, and without writers… well we don’t have many good stories, now do we? That is why this summer we are once again presenting our Summer Reading Salon - providing writers with a chance to have their work read and shared informally in an environment that will promote collaboration, thoughtful feedback and the building of our artistic community.

The first four Mondays in August, we will gather actors to cold read new plays for an audience of theater professionals and theater enthusiasts alongside the playwright. We'll have a glass or two of wine and discuss what we’ve just experienced. The dramaturg-led conversation will be geared towards addressing audience reactions and questions or concerns the playwright might have. This is a perfect opportunity for early-career writers or seasoned veterans looking for a supportive arena to try out their newest venture!

Summer Salon Guidelines -

- Full Length, original plays only (no musicals)

- Play must be complete at the time of submission. Revisions to submitted scripts are allowed, however incomplete texts will not be considered.

- Playwright must be able to attend the Salon (August 1st, 8th, 15th & 22nd)
- All submissions materials must be provided in PDF format

- Multiple submissions accepted, however only one slot will be awarded per playwright

- Preference will be given to plays that stretch the bounds of theatrical storytelling

To be considered for our Summer Salon, please send a resume, synopsis, character breakdown and ten-page sample of the play you wish to submit to MarchForthSubmissions@gmail.com by May 15th. Please note in the body of your email which Salon date(s) you are available for.

Writers whose work is selected for further review will be asked to submit their full script no later than May 31st. Final selections will be made by June 15th.
