Plays need to be heard. It is an important part of the creative process that is extremely helpful in developing a story. A writers group of new work is also that time when an actor can get in on the ground floor of a new play and make theater connections that forge a relationship with both the play and the playwright.

“As a screenwriter I can tell you that you must hear what you write. It is invaluable. When we write we hear something different in our imaginations than what actually comes out of an actor’s mouth. And it is hugely important in the evolution of a script. And it should be a part of any writer’s process before they shop a script to someone of experience. Also, hearing actors read it also gives you many ideas for where else it can grow and develop.”
Estes Tarver – Artistic Director MSC, Actor, and Writer. 

TO SUBMIT: Email 10 Pages of a Play or ScreenPlay to and put “SUBMISSION” in the Subject Line.

You will be notified if your piece is going to be read. If not and you would like feedback from our resident writers,  you can also request that as well.
