Welcome to Playwrights’ Platform

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 meetings in Boston and other area locations, 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.

Playwrights’ Platform welcomes new members and also audience members.

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.
