Somewhere between a new play festival, a writing workshop, and the X Factor, Scribe Night features five scenes from local playwrights read by professional actors in front of a panel of three theatre professionals.
Scribe Night features readings of five scenes from local playwrights read by professional actors on stage in front of a panel of three theatre professionals and the audience.
Each writer submits 5-10 pages of an unpublished work they want feedback on. Those pages are given to the actors for a cold read. The writers are kept anonymous, to encourage fearlessness in their submissions and give a platform for previously unknown playwrights.
After each reading comes (loving) judgment! Each one of the three panelists gives their brief feedback. At the end of the night, each panelist picks one play segment to adopt, meaning that they ll give a longer, written feedback to the playwright after the show.
Tickets are $10-15 Pay-What-You-Want.
A handful of free seats will be made available day-of at the door, and you can always reach out via FB messenger to reserve a free spot if you can't afford to come otherwise.
