Rorschach Theatre in Washington, DC seeks full-length plays for developmental workshops and public readings in the week of March 22-28, 2021. The playwrights, one of whom will be DC-based, will spend about 20 hours over one week working with a director, dramaturg, actors and designers to set and achieve goals for their new work. Each play will receive a virtual public reading that will be performed along with a theoretical design presentation. Audiences will also have the opportunity to talk with artists in a post-show conversation following each play.
