PLAYOFFS: A playwriting slam!

The Dangerous Theatre

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 a generous audience with the chance to win their own staged reading at Denver’s Dangerous Theatre! Build community, hear your work performed by talented actors, and network with local theater makers. HOW IT WORKS: Playwrights arrive with about 10-pages of their script (it can be a work in progress, a short play, or an excerpt from a full length) and enough copies for every character plus one for stage directions. Actors also arrive and put their names in a hat. ROUND 1 -Actors names are drawn and assigned to a play. -Each play has five minutes on the stage. Playwrights should use some of this time to give direction to their actors, but leave as much time as possible for the work. -Then the audience votes for their favorites. ROUND 2 -The top 3 scoring plays advance to round 2 where they recieve 10 minutes of stage time. -Playwrights can cast their play from any actor in attendance. -The audience ranks the plays from their 1st favorite to their 3rd favorite. -Playwrights are given the chance to receive feedback from the audience (only if they want it!) -The scores are tallied and the winner is announced! WHEN? The second Sunday of EVERY month. From 6pm-8pm. WHERE? At Denver’s coolest underground theater space, Denver’s Dangerous Theatre! [2620 W 2nd Ave #1, Denver, CO 80219] WHAT ELSE?
