Founded in 1948, Scripteasers is the longest continually operating playwrights development organization in the nation. Our mission is to help writers to refine their craft. Over the past 70 years, through our process of evening-long public readings and moderated discussions, more than 1,200 dramatic works have been presented. Plays read at Scripteasers have gone on to be produced in cities throughout the United States and in other countries. Our plays and authors have been included in “Best of” anthologies and other published works. At least one play has been filmed.
On Friday evening, May 4, Scripteasers will celebrate its 70th Anniversary with a special showcase featuring staged readings of seven short one-acts.
As we celebrate this milestone, we invite you to contact us with information about your own involvement in Scripteasers. We are especially interested in learning how plays that were read with us went on to have performances for other audiences.
