Calling all Playwrights: Join the Joust Theatre Company's Writers Round Table

Hey there, playwrights! The Joust Theatre Company is currently accepting applications for the Writers’ Round Table, a developmental playwriting group. We are seeking playwrights to submit in-process, unproduced plays that reimagine and/or challenge systemic norms (political, societal, religious, etc.). The Writers’ Round Table will meet 1-2 times per month over a 6 month period to exchange ideas and develop their plays. Each play will then receive 2 workshop performances produced by The Joust, to be presented in repertory with another workshop.

If selected for the group, the Joust will provide you with:

  • Creative space to develop ideas, as well as rehearsal and performance space for the workshop performances.
  • Actors and a director.

  • 360 marketing for workshops.

  • A modest stipend.

To be considered, please send the following in PDF form to by November 30th, 2017:

  • A Writing Resume

  • A Cover Letter that addresses the following:

- Why you would like to be a part of the Writers’ Round Table.

-How your proposed play reimagines or challenges systemic norms.

-Any conflicts spanning more than four consecutive weeks in the 2018 calendar year.

  • A draft or sample of the play you would like to work on in the group.

  • A finished play that you feel best showcases your writing abilities.


We look forward to hearing from you!
