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 JoustLiterary@gmail.com by November 30th, 2017:

- A Cover Letter that addresses the following:
- Why you would like to be a part of the Writers’ Round Table.

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