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.
For meeting directions to our primary location at Lasell College, see where we meet. (We also meet occasionally at the Boston Playwrights’ Theatre.)
For a schedule of our events, see our calendar.
Twice a month, from September through May, the group presents 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 are welcomed and encouraged to participate.
The Platform’s annual Summer Festival gives selected plays an opportunity for workshop-level staged production in a professional-quality theatre, allowing the scripts fuller development and exposure, and offering Boston audiences the opportunity to be part of the process of creating new dramatic work. Please explore our site to learn more about us, find out about our upcoming events, and learn how you can be a part of our ongoing success!
