Each month, from October through March, PlayGround announces a topic to a pre-selected writers pool of Bay Area emerging professional playwrights, inviting the submission of original ten-page plays. The best six of these plays are presented as staged readings before a live audience on the third Monday of the month at Berkeley Repertory Theatre, featuring some of the Bay Area's best directors and actors. Pre-show discussions each month provide additional insight into the writers' process, the state of Bay Area theatre, and other aspects emerging out of the monthly topics. PlayGround begins its 21st consecutive Monday Night PlayGround season on October 20, 2014. For more information on becoming a member of the writers pool, click here.
