The Women Playwrights Series is a developmental program dedicated to providing a working forum for the unique and under-served voice of women writing for the theatre today. Each season 3 new plays are selected for a collaborative workshop process, with a professional director and actors, which takes place in a brief rehearsal period of approximately 1 week, allowing time for the playwright to hear and adapt their work with other professionals. The process culminates in a presentation of the work for the general public as part of the series, giving CSC audiences larger exposure to new work.
Since 1992, Centenary Stage Company’s Women Playwrights Series has featured and helped to develop the new work of over 80 female playwrights from around the country, provided a working platform for the under-served voices of women writing the theatre, and produced 20 World Premieres in as many years.
Plays must be full-length with no prior AEA productions and no more than 7 characters. Submissions must include a cover letter and one letter of recommendation.
