What is Playwrights Playground?
The Classical Theatre of Harlem’s popular cold reading series is designed to promote the work of emerging playwrights whose works are persistently underrepresented on American stages. Writers submit up to fifteen pages and are invited to participate in readings in this Monday evening series. While having a chance to hear their own words read by industry professionals, writers also participate in a feedback session designed to encourage, inspire, and promote continued exploration of their writing process. Up to five scenes are read on each evening.

In addition to serving the development of new work, these readings give audiences a sneak peek into how new plays are created.

Actors interested in being cast in the readings should arrive at 6:30 for role assignments.
