The Joust Theatre Company's Writers' Round Table

web site

The Joust Theatre Company is currently accepting applications for our Writers’ Round Table, a new developmental playwriting group. We are seeking playwrights to submit in-process, unproduced plays that reimagine and/or challenge systemic norms (political, societal, religious, etc.).

The Writers’ Round Table will meet 1-2 times per month over a 6 month period to exchange ideas and develop their plays. Each play will then receive 2 workshop performances produced by The Joust, to be presented in repertory with another workshop. If selected for the group, the Joust will provide you with:
  • Creative space to develop ideas, as well as rehearsal and performance space for the workshop performances.
  • Actors and a director.
  • 360 marketing for workshops.
  • A modest stipend.
To be considered, please send the following in PDF form to joustliterary@gmail.com by NOVEMBER 30th, 2017:
