Rorschach Theatre in Washington, DC seeks full-length plays for developmental workshops and public readings from April 22-25, 2022. The playwrights, one of whom will be DC-based, will spend about 10 hours during this weekend working with a director, dramaturg, actors and designers to set and achieve goals for their new work. The process will involve in-person workshops and virtual public performances. The plays will be performed along with a theoretical design presentation and audiences will have the opportunity to talk with artists in a live post-show conversation.
