2017 Spring Playwriting Workshop

We're excited to announce a new development opportunity for full-length plays!

Central Works Theater in conjunction with PCSF presents the 2017 Spring Playwriting Workshop and Series of New Play Staged Readings.

This program is for playwrights who are interested in an intensive developmental workshop period of six weeks, followed by a staged reading of the work in an open workshop setting. Writers all participate as readers in workshop presentations. The workshop is limited to 6 writers/6 projects.

Cost: $350 ($320 for PCSF members).
6 workshop meetings, 7pm to 10pm,
Tuesdays: Feb 21, 28, Mar 7, 14, 21, 28,
and a showcase of new work presented over 4 days, Apr 6-9.

The workshop is an exciting process that moves scripts from the page to the first stage of production: a staged reading. It's a hands-on production program that requires writers to take the lead in the staging of your play (or find a director), participate in the readings of other writers in the group (if asked), and generate an audience for your own reading (if you want one). The culminating reading series amounts to the presentation of six new plays in four days. It's an exhilarating experience, and a demanding one. So if you're interested, be prepared to work hard and learn a lot.

Publicity Guide updated

The PCSF Publicity Guide (PDF), a basic guide for getting audiences for your readings and performances, has been updated to 2016. Thank you to Laylah Muran de Assereto for her work on this helpful work.


PCSF hits 1500 plays

PCSF has hit a milestone! As of May 22, 2016, PCSF has brought 1500 plays to the stage in the form of public readings and productions. Some of these plays have gone on to readings and productions elsewhere.

We are proud of our record supporting Bay Area playwrights in honing their work, and we are proud of and grateful to the playwrights, directors, actors, volunteers, donors, and others who have brought us this far and are bringing us into the future of theatre.
