Our next monthly meeting will take place over Zoom on Monday September 21, at 7 PM. If you are not on the Playwrights Ink mailing list, contact us to receive a meeting link.
As soon as we can get started after 7, we will read:
Shelter (part) …………………………… By Bob Curry :60?
It would be best if audience members not participating as actors mute mics and turn off cameras, but the host can control that as well. We can still see and hear the readers, but extraneous noises and video distractions will be minimized.
Playwrights Ink exists to serve playwrights and the development of their plays. By virtue of this mission, we do not have artistic direction or an official policy on language, politics, race, or sex. We are a live conduit, like Twitter, and we have no filters to screen material some may find offensive or unsavory. If you discover a play is not your thing, slip away and come visit us next month.
Our meetings let playwrights hear their own dialog and subsequently feedback from the audience. One of the tenets of our critique process is to offer something we like first, and we all need encouragement right now because who knows when the performing arts will come back from this plague. Second, we go to what didn’t work for us. We should never get personal but stay focused on the play and respect the writer for the accomplishment and courage to make it public. We encourage frankness, specific language and kindness.
