Table Read ( My Screenplay

If you have never attended a Table Read before, this is an amazing opportunity for a writer — to hear their words spoken by professional actors. The first 5 pages are critical to catching and maintaining a reader’s attention (especially if your reader is a producer, director, manager or agent). But it’s equally important to hear your words spoken aloud — preferably by professional actors.

Here’s your chance to watch scripts in action, participate in feedback, and hear the valuable actors’ perspective.

New location: The Fifty/[masked] w. Division St
Chicago, IL

Sunday, January 6, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (CST)

OUR OWN Member Scripts To Be Read on January 6th:

Eyes for an Eye by Riik Makkoogan

*Please note that scripts were not chosen as “winners.” Many factors went into the decision-making process such as offering a variety of genres and writing style.

Come support each other.

Have a very happy New Year.
