Play Club is our online book club for plays! Read plays, discuss them with the group and write a ten minute play in response to the text!
Play Club – an 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: For each round of Play Club, 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!
