Wisconsin Wrights and Forward Theater Company have joined together to support and develop new theatrical work by awarding Wisconsin playwrights the opportunity to develop their plays for a professional public reading series.
The New Play Development Reading series will take place during Forward Theater’s 2015-2016 season. Up to three playwrights will develop their plays with professional directors, dramaturgs, and actors. Rehearsals culminate in a public reading. The Wisconsin Wrights New Play Development Project provides an extraordinary opportunity for the expansion and exercise of the playwriting craft, exploration of characters, and constructive critique by caring, invested artists.
Wisconsin Wrights will begin accepting scripts on December 1, 2014. The deadline for submissions for Wisconsin Wrights is February 1st, 2015 with the selection process taking place from February through May, 2015. Finalists will be announced in mid-June 2015. Complete details and submission guidelines are available at http://wisconsinwrights.org.
Wisconsin Wrights is accepting submissions from current Wisconsin residents only.
