Click on our Events 2017 page to the right for information about our May 2 reading of ART THERAPY by Matthew Taft Gross, OUT OF BOUNDARIES by Danny Mankin, and THE DESERT SCENTED OF HONEY by Nina Monique Kelly. This session is slated for the Portland Center Stage Conference Room, 128 NW 11th Ave. Kindly scroll down for general 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. Our next regular meeting, the May 2 reading of SHORT PLAYS by Matthew Taft Gross, Danny Mankin and Nina Monique Kelly, is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the conference room at Portland Center Stage, 128 NW 11th Ave.
