PDXPStageEmblemWithLogo

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?

Please see our Playwright FAQ page (from the link on the right of this page) for more details. We also have tips on preparing your script for our readings.

FIFTH TUESDAYS

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. The July 21 reading, Cheat by James Y. Kim, will be held at Stonehenge Studios, 3508 SW Corbett Ave.

If interested in attending or submitting a play for our regular reading sessions, or if you have questions after visiting our information pages on this site, we welcome inquiries: info@pdxplaywrights.org or submit@pdxplaywrights.org
