Athena Project’s Read & Rant: A Plays In Progress Series
Submissions Accepted: November 15-30 for February Read & Rant

Athena Project’s new Read & Rant program seeks to combine the original form’s sharing of theatrical work with the wider public with the new play development aspects of Plays In Progress while also fostering collaboration between playwrights and dramaturgs. We are initiating these changes to Read & Rant with the goal to create digital opportunities for early and mid-career playwrights, uplift women* writers and dramaturgs overall, and highlight underrepresentation for women* in these positions.

A total of five plays will be selected via lottery. Two of these plays will be featured in our next Read & Rant and will receive a moderated Zoom discussion led by a dramaturg as well as initial feedback from the public. The remaining three will still have an opportunity to receive short feedback from a dramaturg via a medium of their preference (written, audio recording, short video, or live phone call).

Submission Guidelines:

  • Playwright must be a woman* and may submit only one full-length script each month. Full-length is defined by at least 60 pages in standard playscript format.
  • Only previously unproduced plays are eligible. Scripts with prior workshops, readings or academic productions are accepted, but the script should be revised prior to submission to Read & Rant so the playwright receives the most benefit from this opportunity. (Presently, we cannot accept musicals.)

The submission deadline is November 30, 2022, 11:59 pm MDT for February Read & Rant participation.

Plays In Progress Readers

At this time we’re not looking for plays-in-progress readers, however, if you love plays and supporting women writers, we invite you to join us at an upcoming Read & Rant session–there are plenty of opportunities to connect over plays and ranting.  And who knows, you might even find one to rave about!
