At least once a year, Play Cafe host a workshop to help playwrights network with theatre professionals and learn more about new play development. Next month, we will bring back a popular panel discussion to gather tips and insights on getting original work produced today.
How to Get Your Work Produced, Oct 18, 2014 (2pm-5pm)
Berkeley Rep School of Theatre
Featuring Advice and Experience from:
Anthony Clarvoe (Playwright)
Melissa Hillman (Artistic Director, Impact)
Carol Lashof (Playwright, Founder, Those Women Productions)
Eric Reid (Artistic Director, Theater MadCap)
Jennifer Roberts (Playwright, President, Playwrights’ Center of San Francisco).
Moderated by Tracy Held Potter (Executive Director, Play Cafe)
Our panel represents decades of experience from Bay Area artistic directors who are committed to working with local and emerging playwrights as well as playwrights who have had their work produced locally and nationally and have experience writing pieces on commission or self-production. See our event page for bios from this diverse and experienced group of panelists.
We will open the discussion with moderated questions to the entire panel, and then we will continue the discussion with an audience-led Q&A. The afternoon will conclude with social time and refreshments.
Our panel will be held at the Berkeley Rep School of Theatre at 2071 Addison Street. We will be in the Bakery Room on the first floor (wheelchair accessible). There is paid parking across the street and our venue is one and a half blocks from Downtown Berkeley BART.
Pre-purchased tickets are $30.00 general admission and $25.00 member (to become a member, visit http://playcafe.org/memberships/). Door sales are $35.00 general admission and $25.00 for members.
