Playwrights on Park reading series seeks plays

web site

We are currently accepting submissions for the 2019-2020 season of the Playwrights on Park Reading Series at Playhouse on Park in West Hartford, CT.

PLAYWRIGHTS ON PARK is an exciting artistic endeavor for Playhouse on Park. Our mission is to develop and produce original plays, 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.

Playwrights selected as part of the Playwrights on Park Reading Series will have a day of rehearsal, followed by a reading of their play and a talkback with the audience.


Submit plays to newworks@playhousetheatregroup.org


Playwrights MUST be able to come to West Hartford for the day of the reading and the audience discussion that follows.

There will be a rehearsal the day of the reading in which attendance by the playwright is optional, but strongly encouraged.
