web site

Deadline: May 15th, 2020

West Hartford, CT
We are currently accepting submissions for the 2020-2021 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.


We are seeking exclusively full-length, small cast plays (4 actors or less). Sensible doubling is fine.

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.

Transportation may be provided from NYC or New England locations by the Playhouse. Readings will be on select Sunday nights throughout the season.

We will choose FIVE plays to be read throughout the 2020/2021 season. Final selections will be made by June 20th at the latest.
