The lineup of our provocative and entertaining plays in the 2017 Fertile Ground Festival of New Work appear in the link to the lower right, or here where you can also leap to buy tickets! We have no Third Tuesday reading this month because of the festival, but kindly scroll down for more information about our group.
PDX Playwrights is a group for playwrights who want to meet, hear their scripts read aloud, and share feedback.
Typically we have about a dozen people at each meeting: playwrights, actors, and friends. Plays are read aloud by whomever is at the table that night. We encourage you to attend our sessions even if you aren’t bringing a play. New readers are always welcome!
REGULAR PLAY-READING MEETINGS
Our regular readings occur on the first Tuesdays and third Tuesdays of each month. We also hold fifth Tuesday workshops when applicable. These are open to anyone interested in hearing new work read aloud and learning more about PDX Playwrights.
HOW DO MEETINGS WORK?
When the month has a fifth week with a Tuesday, you’re in luck. We reserve these dates for one-night workshops or presentations about an element of playwriting. Past sessions have explored structure, dialogue, breaking plays in the development process and entering contests. When a fifth Tuesday approaches, check our events page.
TIME AND PLACE
The meetings run 7 to 9 p.m. They are free, but a hat is passed to cover administrative costs (suggested donation $5). The location typically is one of two gathering places in or near downtown Portland. Please join us at Hipbone Studios beginning January 20 for our astonishing assortment of new work as part of Fertile Ground 2017. Our next regular meeting is February 7, to be held in the third-floor conference room of Portland Center Stage, 128 NW 11th Ave.
