Playwrights’ Platform supports justice for BIPOC.  We hope that this support, combined with a continuation of the arts, will not only help our nation heal, but will lead us to a better place, where all of our citizens are treated equally and where democracy is truly democracy.


Playwrights’ Platform is a non-profit, Boston-area cooperative of playwrights, directors, and resident actors. Since 1973, Playwrights’ Platform has helped develop new theater by providing a forum to explore the process of creating dramatic work.

At regularly-scheduled, open-to-the-public meetings, Playwrights’ Platform presents readings of members’ plays, both long and short form.   Each play reading is followed by a feedback session that helps playwrights improve their work.

Currently, meetings are held over Zoom, which is free for users.  Go to zoom.us for information about accessing the platform.  For information about normal meeting locations, go to WHERE WE MEET.

While meetings are open to the public, you must become a member to have a play read and to take advantage of other benefits, including the yearly festival and the ACTORS IN RESIDENCE program. For information about becoming a member, go to MEMBERSHIP.

To learn more about plays written by Playwrights’ Platform members, books of plays featured in past festivals are available on Amazon.com.
