Attention all playwrights!
Want a chance to hear your work read aloud? Looking for feedback on that crucial scene that's been driving you crazy? Sign up today to take part in the Small Theatre Alliance of Boston's first Open Mic Night for Playwrights.
Attention all actors!
Want to be involved in the first stages of new play development? Looking to explore new plays while honing your cold reading skills? Mark your calendars for Open Mic Night and give voice to new plays by Boston playwrights.
How it works:
- Playwrights sign up for 10-minute slots: to have your work read, sign up here. Alliance Open Mic is on a first come first serve basis: the first six playwrights* to sign up for the evening will have the opportunity to hear some of their work (either short plays or selected scenes from longer works) read aloud by actors from our community, followed by a response session from the actors and audience. In order to accommodate as many playwrights as possible, a strict adherence to the time limit is requested. Should your piece run longer than 10 minutes, your response session time will be cut shorter.
- Evening line-up is announced - check Alliance website and Facebook pages on February 7th to see the line-up and character break-down of the pieces being read.
- Actor selection: anyone wishing to serve as an actor for the evening is asked to arrive at the Factory Theatre by 7pm on the 21st. Casting will be assigned from the actors present.
*In playwright selection, Alliance Members will be given priority over non-Members.
