The Playwrights’ Platform is a non-profit Boston-area cooperative of playwrights, directors, and resident actors. Since 1972, the Platform has helped develop new theater in greater Boston by providing a forum to explore the process of creating new dramatic work.
Meeting directions: Our primary location is at Lasell College, where we meet usually two Sundays a month. See where we meet. We also meet occasionally at the Boston Playwrights’ Theatre. Upcoming dates at the BPT are Monday, June 19, Monday, July 17, and Monday, August 14. Our meetings at both venues are from 7 to 9 pm.
Our schedule: See our calendar.
What we do: From September through May, we present readings of new works by local playwrights at our meetings, which are free and open to the public. Each reading is followed by a lively discussion and feedback session. New members are welcomed and encouraged to participate through submitting plays or simply by attending readings.
New members: We welcome new members. See join us.
Summer Festival: Our annual festival lets members produce their plays in a professional-quality theater. See festival.
