Seeking Playwrights for Play Reading Series

play reading series

The Reading Theater Project’s Play Reading Series creates opportunities for playwrights to see and hear their work and receive feedback on new plays. RTP creates a safe artistic space for playwrights to return to again and again to develop new work before sending it out for performance and publication.

Selected plays will receive a staged reading or virtual reading. The readings in the series are all public, with admission by donation, and followed by a discussion with the audience and playwright, facilitated by the Artistic or Literary Director of Reading Theater Project.

Plays can be 10 minutes, one act, or full length.  

Plays will be performed in the Greater Reading, Pa., area. Playwrights are invited to attend the reading, are encouraged to be a part of the rehearsal process, and will receive a travel stipend if applicable. Generally the rehearsal is in the afternoon and the reading follows the same night. 

Submit plays or send questions to plays@readingtheaterproject.com. All plays must be sent in pdf format, with a cover letter or email detailing the history of the play and goals for the public reading. We ask for a $10 fee. Submit plays or send questions to plays@readingtheaterproject.com

Play submissions are accepted anytime.
