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: February 22, March 29, April 26, and May 16.) 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 gives members an opportunity for workshop-level staged production in a professional-quality theatre, allowing the scripts fuller development and exposure.
