Playwrights Aloud is returning and will now be held as a podcast on the new platform Chicago Dramatists Radio.
Each month, three 10min. audio dramas will be selected to be recorded via Zoom. Following the reading of the show there will be a brief talkback with all of the playwrights to discuss the scripts. These recordings and talkbacks will then be released to Chicago Dramatists Radio.
Playwrights, once the plays are selected you will be asked to either bring in actors or select them from our actor applications for that month. During the recording session you, your actors, and your director (if you are not directing yourself) will be put into a breakout room for 30min. to rehearse. Afterward, we will record each show one by one with everyone and then have a short discussion about each script.
