March Forth Productions

Summer Reading Salon

Deadline: May 15

March Forth Production's Summer Reading Salon provides writers with a chance to have their work read and shared informally in an environment that will promote collaboration, thoughtful feedback and the building of an artistic community.

The first four Mondays in August, actors will gather to cold read new plays for an audience of theater professionals and theater enthusiasts alongside the playwright. The artists and audiences will have a glass or two of wine and discuss what they’ve experienced. The dramaturg-led conversation will be geared towards addressing audience reactions and questions or concerns the playwright might have. This is a perfect opportunity for early-career writers or seasoned veterans looking for a supportive arena to try out their newest venture!
