PLEASE MAKE NOTE AND FOLLOW THE SPECIAL RULES FOR THE PLAYWRIGHTS GROUP DURING THESE TIMES:
Rose-Marie has volunteered to lead the group beginning at 6:30 but will be limiting participation to 15 members only! To rsvp, email Rose-Marie at email@example.com with how many pages you plan to bring and how many actors you will require. To accommodate more playwrights and actors, a second evening on Wednesday will be held ONLY if more members wish to participate in person. NO walk-ins permitted!! You will also be turned away if you are not wearing a MASK!! Social distancing will be observed at all times.
The Playwrights group meetings are open to all members, including actors and directors. Playwrights bring in work in progress to have it read by actor members and to get constructive critique from other members if desired. The number of writers in attendance at each meeting varies but we try to make sure everyone’s work gets read; hence we try to hold each reading to about 15 minutes plus time for critique. If there are fewer pieces to be read on a given night, more time can be allotted. This is an excellent opportunity for actors to sharpen their cold reading skills. Many plays developed in this workshop have been produced at Polaris North and elsewhere, some have been published or won awards. The sponsor member of this group is Grant Machan.
The Playwright’s Group meets on alternating Mondays from 7 PM to 9 PM. See our Events Page for the current schedule.
