Player-Playwrights is an association of writers and actors who meet on Monday evenings for professional readings of new work before an informed audience.
The purpose of the meeting is to allow the writer to see and hear the work in performance and to have it evaluated and discussed, with a view to getting it before the public, whether by production, publication or sale. And it is fun too.
Our home is the Three Stags, 67/69 Kennington Road, London SE1 7PZ.
The readings start at 7.30. The meeting usually ends by 9.45 but a full length play, or double bill, can take us up to 10.30. There are opportunities for socialising and networking until the bar closes.
It costs £12 to join Player-Playwrights, with an annual subscription, due on 1 January each year of £8; there is also an attendance fee of £2 a night.
If you would like to know more please contact our Publicity Secretary, Debbie Maya, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Better still, just drop in at the Three Stags any Monday evening (with your £2 ready to pay the Treasurer) and spend the evening with us. We don’t want you to join unless you are sure it’s for you.
