The Playwrights Group & Special Event

Take advantage of our Online Offerings

There’s Something for Everyone @ TPG 


Weekly Zoom Workshop


Get feedback on a finished script or one you’re just getting started on. We read everything from a one page scene to a full length. Plays, musicals, film scripts — whatever it is you’re working on. This is a great way to keep yourself focused and to connect with other playwrights across the country.

We meet (virtually) Thursdays from 7 - 9:30pm EST. Arrange to sit in on a session and see for yourself. And check out our website for more details and rates.

Script Consultations

Have a script you want feedback on? Just send a PDF of your script and you’ll get the answers you’re looking for via email and/or video conference.

Richard Caliban has worked with individuals on their scripts from all over the world — Indonesia, China, Greece, Australia, Serbia, as well as right here in New York. A script consultation will provide you with feedback on the structural soundness of your story, the dramatic arc of your protagonist, thematic unity and much more.

Online One-on-One Courses

Both are One on One with instructor Richard Caliban, who has spent his life in rehearsal rooms getting words on a page up onto a stage. And since it’s One on One, the courses can be adjusted to fit your level of experience.
