Next Meetup

Screenwriting and Acting Meetup!
Every meeting follows the same general formula: attendees can bring in part of a screen/stageplay, at any stage of development and of any genre, to be performed as a cold read by other members. Writers of all types, actors of all skill levels, and everyone else is welcome as well! Depending on the length of the pieces brought in, we usually read 3 or 4 per meeting. • What to bring Up to ten pages of your own original piece of screenwriting, and yourself!

What we're about

This is a group for people who like to write screenplays/short films/stage plays/etc. for fun (or who even aspire to be professional), and who'd like to present their work to a group of friendly, like-minded people for feedback and an outside perspective. It's also for actors who'd like to sharpen their skills and do some on-the-spot interpretations of those writers' work for a non-judgmental audience.

Our premise is: writers bring in up to 10 pages of anything they're working on, and attending actors (or other writers) will do a blind table read of your material. We meet every two weeks, on Tuesday evenings, for the time being.

Our group endeavors to be laid-back, accessible, and honest, and actors/writers of any and all skill levels are welcome, as well as material of all genres and subjects.

Come for the whole evening and meet some new friends, or just come with a piece and leave once you've been reviewed! We are spun-off from the similar group which used to meet at The Front Page before it closed.

Hope to see you at our next meeting!
