The Playwrights’ Platform is a non-profit Boston-area cooperative of playwrights, directors, and resident actors. Since 1973, the Platform has helped develop new theater in greater Boston by providing a forum to explore the process of creating new dramatic work.
Our schedule: See our calendar.
Meeting directions: We currently meet at three locations: Boston Playwrights’ Theatre at 949 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, one Monday per month (7-9pm); The Woman’s Club of Newton, 72 Columbus Street, Newton Highlands, one Sunday per month (6-8pm). (See where we meet.) Also, we occasionally meet on Sunday afternoons at Cambridge Public Library (2:30-4:30pm).
What we do: 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.
