Zoom Plays: Reading Series

Posted by MB - October 9, 2020

 

In March we put out an open call for plays and scenes written to be performed on the Zoom platform.  We currently have over 285 submissions (and counting!) from around the world.  We have put together two teams of readers to read every single play that was submitted to our open source ZOOM PLAYS database.  Through a multi-step process, we are choosing a handful of plays to present as public readings.  Check out the plays below and stay tuned for more information about how to watch the plays!  Visit our Women in Theatre Festival page to learn more about the cast and teams behind the series.  To learn more about Zoom Plays or submit your own play, click here!
