Open Mic for the Playwright
Friday, June 5 / 7PM
FREE / All Ages Welcome
Live Playwrights’ Society presents “Open Mic for the Playwright” on the main stage at the Garfield Center for the Arts on Friday, June 5th at 7pm. Open Mic for the Playwright is a staged reading of short, locally-written scripts. Audience participation is encouraged! We want to hear what you think of these scripts. We want to help these local playwrights improve their scripts and increase the chances of their script finding a spot in Short Attention Span Theatre 2015 (which goes up the weekends of September 18-20 and September 25-27).
We will feature plays written by: Paul Briggs, Tia Glomb, Earl Lewin, Howard Mesick, Mark Sullivan, and Keith Thompson.
The plays will be performed by our talented readers: Brad Chaires, Jen Friedman, Tess Hogans, Diane Landskroener, Jim Landskroener, Timothy Maloney, Melissa McGlynn, and Howard Mesick.
We need your feedback – Come be a part of the show!

About Live Playwrights’ Society
Live Playwrights’ Society (LPS) is a local writers group which was created in 2009 through a collaboration between Church Hill Theatre’s Steve Arnold, The Prince Theatre’s Lucia Foster, and local writer Mark Sullivan. LPS aims to foster a community of playwrights, actors and critics. Over the years, LPS members have created dozens of plays which have been performed on local stages, and on stages across the country. LPS was born in the front room of The Feast of Reason, and has had many homes – Andy’s, The Imperial Hotel, The Prince Theatre and Church Hill Theatre. As of late, our monthly meetings are held in the renovated lobby of the Garfield Center for the Arts. We meet at 7:30pm on the first Monday of each month. www.liveplaywrightssociety.org
