Playwrights on Park Reading Series

We are currently accepting submissions for the 2017-2018 season of the Playwrights on Park Reading Series at Playhouse on Park in West Hartford, CT.



Playwrights MUST be able to come to West Hartford for the day of the reading. There will be a talkback with the playwright and the cast after the reading. There will be a rehearsal the day of the reading in which attendance by the playwright is optional, but strongly encouraged. Transportation may be provided from NYC or New England locations by the Playhouse.

We will ultimately choose 5-6 readings for the 2017/2018 season. Final selections will be made by June 1.

The plays will receive a cast of professional actors and a director and will be presented as a staged reading for a public audience. After the reading, a moderated audience discussion with the actors, the director, and most importantly, the playwright, will give both the Playhouse on Park and the playwright constructive feedback to further develop the playwright's vision for the play. 

Playwrights on Park is a new and exciting artistic endeavor for Playhouse on Park. Our mission is to develop and produce original plays and musicals, to foster emerging and established playwrights, and to become a leader in new play development. We aim to help establish the Greater Hartford Area as a premiere destination for the cultivation and exploration of innovative theatrical work.


Submission Guidelines:

Please submit a FULL script and character breakdown (Please submit in PDF format). No hard copies please.

Include any production or workshop history, as well as biographies of the playwright, and any collaborators

Playwrights may self submit or go through a literary agent.

For musicals please submit the music on a CD or by mp3.
