WORDPLAY TUESDAYS

 

Diversionary Theatre and San Diego Playwrights have teamed up to host WordPlay Tuesdays, a opportunity for writers to hear their developing new works read out loud in a relaxed open-mic style setting on the second Tuesday of every month.

 

Writers select a ten minute segment of their evolving play (or short story, poem, song, or book) for a cold reading, offering them a chance to hear their words brought to life in front of a live audience of artists and theatre lovers. Actors get the opportunity to become acquainted with the work of emerging writers while they take an important role in the creation of new plays. All WordPlay Tuesdays are free and open to the public.

To submit work, email the selection to wordplay@diversionary.org. Please include a brief synopsis of the overall story, and few notes about where you are in the development process.
