London Playwrights online book club for plays! Play Club is back for 2022 this July

Play Club, our online book club for plays is back for 2022! Read plays, discuss them with the group and write a ten minute play in response to the text!

Play Club, our online book club with a twist! As with last year’s Play Club, we’ll be featuring new writing from 3 incredible writers selected from our 2021 submission window.

How it works: Each month, we’ll be sending out a play for you to read and we’ll all meet up to chat about it online. You’ll have the opportunity to meet the writer and get to know the ideas behind the story before we challenge you to write a short 10-page play in response, inspired by what you’ve read.  You’ll then be invited to submit your short plays to us and selected plays will be read by actors online and broadcast as part of a digital Play Club event!

How to take part: head over to the members’ site to sign up for the Play Club 2022 mailing list (if you scroll down the homepage, you’ll notice it under member opportunities or you can also find it in the drop down resources menu). Then you’re good to go! We’ll send all information, scripts, details of the discussion session, and submission windows to you by email via the Play Club mailing list. We ask that everyone who takes part is a current member of London Playwrights as our organisation is supported entirely by our members. If you’re not a member already, you can sign up here for just £3.63 and get access to lots of other benefits as well as Play Club!

When does it start? The next round of Play Club is now live!

What, and whose, play will we be talking about it Play Club 3?


Drum roll please….

This is the story of  one woman discovering that those cracks have crept into the foundations of the life she has built. You can make all the choices you like about who you want to be, but sometimes what determines your fate is what other people see
