Our May 3 reading of LEFT OF WEST by Tamar Shai is slated for the Portland Center Stage conference room, 128 NW 11th Ave. Please see our Events 2016 page (with a link to the right) for more information about this reading, and scroll down for more 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.
On May 24, 2016 (instead of May 31) we plan a special Fourth Tuesday guest panel event. Please see the 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 May 3 reading of Left of West by Tamar Shai will be held at Portland Center Stage conference room, 128 NW 11th Ave.
