These are readings (not staged works) with the primary purpose of allowing the playwrights to see how their works “play.” We absolutely want friends and family (and “others!”) to come and participate in the feedback discussions.


In July 2018, the Players Club will again provide a space for some New Plays to be heard. Up to four plays will be selected, and each will be given a single-night reading, to allow the playwright to hear his/her work and take their play to the next level. We invite our PCS community to come discover new work, and participate in sharing your responses with the artists.

We have received 42 plays to read and evaluate, and the readers have begun their work. Each play will be read by at least two people. A final list of plays will be selected for further review and all readers will read those plays before the three (or four) are chosen for the Festival in July.
As stated, any play is eligible, but we have stated preferences that we will use as guidelines. Preference will be given for playwrights closer to the geographical area, to plays between 90 and 120 minutes estimated length and to plays that are still in development. We will consider suitability and ability to cast for our theatre and audience.
We hope to have plays chosen by June 1st. All submitting playwrights will receive email acknowledging whether they were selected or not.
Thank you to all the playwrights who have submitted their work.
