Playwrights are invited to submit their final scripts for consideration to the Catherine Lindsey Actors/Playwrights Workshop and contest by March 23.
The program, now in its 26th year, will present a series of workshops at Darien Library, culminating in the presentation of four 10-minute plays on June 10.
The Darien Library Selection Committee will choose musicals, monologues, short scenes from full-length and one-act plays to be performed.
When writing your piece please keep in mind that the number of cast members is limited, only one play may be submitted per person, and plays must be 10-minutes long or less. Please limit your plays to 10-pages double-spaced, 12 point font.
The Actors/Playwrights Workshop welcomes all interested playwrights and actors, with or without experience, Actors Equity actors and non-Equity actors, to join. The sessions offer actors and playwrights the opportunity to work together to create original theatrical works in a supportive and creative environment,
The workshop culminates in a June 10 program which will feature four staged performances.
Co-founded by the late Catherine Lindsey and her husband Robert, the workshop introduces original plays in progress to be developed in a workshop environment with the goal of the public-staged readings. Catherine Lindsey was a beloved friend of the Library and director of Darien Library Theater for over 25 years.
