Announcement & Pool Requirements
2013-14 PlayGround Writers Pool and Resident Playwrights will be announced at the PlayGround Season Kick-Off on
Monday evening, September 23, 2013 (selected writers must attend a mandatory company meeting at 5:30pm that evening). Writers Pool members must commit to submitting for at least five of the six
Monday Night PlayGrounds in any season. The submission of a script to
Monday Night PlayGround grants PlayGround the exclusive option to stage
the play as part of the Monday Night PlayGround and, should it be so
selected, to present the world premiere as part of The Best of
PlayGround Festival and publish the script in the "Best of PlayGround"
anthology. Upon publication, PlayGround serves as the exclusive licensor
for English language stock and amateur rights in the U.S. and Canada.
