Applications are open for GTG’s 2020-2021 Speakers’ Corner Writers’ Group

web site

Deadline: September 30, 2020

Full-length sample play wanted

This season, Speakers’ Corner will meet remotely from late October, 2020 through June, 2021.

Member writers read and discuss a specific play by George Bernard Shaw before responding to Shaw’s work through targeted writing prompts. 

The writers’ new works needn’t be commentaries on Shaw or adaptations of Shaw’s work, but original works inspired by the ideas sparked by reading and discussing the initial Shaw play as a cohort. 

Speakers’ Corner writers then spend the remainder of the year developing these ideas into plays to be developed through readings and workshop labs. At monthly and bi-monthly meetings, writers share their work and receive constructive feedback from one another and from members of GTG’s artistic staff. 

The goal, ultimately, is to create play that will be fully produced as part of the GTG future seasons.

Named after the corner of London’s Hyde Park where Shaw and other political speakers have delivered speeches since 1855, GTG’s Speakers’ Corner brings together six to ten writers who spend the year exploring a specific Shaw play and writing new work in response to that text.
