Play Development Workshop Series

GREAT is looking for four original play scripts written by local artists for our inaugural Play Development Workshop Series!

This is an opportunity for new playwrights to take the next step with their written scripts and receive feedback on their work. You provide the original script and we provide the actors for an evening of reading and workshopping.

Submit your script by October 25, 2019 (though we’d love submissions sooner) to be considered for the November/February workshop dates and by January 31 to be considered for the March/April workshop dates. Playwrights will be notified of selections by Nov. 1 and Feb.
