In the autumn of 2011 the Program Committee decided that a program was needed to develop the playwriting skills of our members. With this goal in mind, Play Reading Workshops  were created, where plays are read to an audience of our members. Plays are first submitted to a Play Selections Committee who read, discuss and choose plays ready for the workshop process.  Additionally, Playwright Circle is an essential part of the program.  Meetings take place the first Thursday in the month, Room 311 in Heaslip House and offer playwrights the opportunity for peer encouragement and feedback on works in progress. Read more about these groups and the opportunities to participate.

Dates for upcoming Playwright Circle meetings are listed on the website calendar.  For further information on the Playwright Circle, please contact Krystyna Hunt
