Sessions will encompass producing from primarily a practical angle: scheduling, budgeting, managing time, money and people, through marketing and promotions, grant writing and fundraising, and the practical aspects of putting up a production. It will also include discussion of the ethics and morals of independent production and the differences between producing new work vs published work.

Submissions should include:

  • a resume
  • and a letter concerning why Block P will serve your needs now

Applicants must be members of PTC. The fee for Block P is $300, payable on acceptance. If finances are a barrier, please contact Kathleen Flaherty (kathleen@playwrightstheatre.com) to discuss options.
