Playoffs: A Playwriting slam!
Part live theatre game, part battle royale, PLAYOFFS is a friendly competition where the stage is the battleground, and new work is always the winner. Playwrights are given the opportunity to showcase their work before our panel of industry professionals and an audience, for a chance at a staged reading at Denver’s Dangerous Theatre! Build community, hear your work performed, and network with local theater makers.
HOW IT WORKS:
Playwrights arrive with their pages (10 of your best pages! Can be from a ten-minute play, one-act, or full length. Can be completed or a work in progress!) and tell us how many actors the piece requires. Actors also arrive and put their names in a cool hat.
Actors names are drawn and each playwright has five minutes on the stage. They should use some of this time to give direction to their actors, but leave as much time as possible for the work.
After 5 minutes has passed, the panel of industry professional judges will give the play a score from 1-10.
The top 3 scoring plays advance to round 2 where they recieve 10 minutes of stage time.
After each piece, the audience has a chance to persuade the judges about why their favorite play deserves to win!
The Judges score each play and the winner is crowned!
