Take a peek into the Pro Rata process!

We want to know what YOU think about our potential plays.

Join us as we take a closer look at contenders for an upcoming season. Hear a different exciting script read aloud each night, and then talk about it in a casual open-forum discussion about its merits and foibles. Who knows? Your input could determine what plays we do next season! We’ll announce the script title each night from the stage.

Play Reading Series Dates:

  • Wednesday, March 21 @ 7:00 pm
  • Wednesday, March 28 @ 7:00 pm

Oh yeah, and it’s free! (We’ll take donations, though.)

Performing at
The Crane Theater

Audience comments

“This was a very enjoyable and interesting event! I’ve never been to a play reading before. Fascinating discussion afterward. I’ll be coming to as many more of these as I can.”

“I found the play reading sessions I attended fascinating. I don’t have a theatre background, and I had never analyzed a script before. The comments from the actors/readers and the Pro Rata folks were so interesting! They also enjoyed hearing reactions [me]. One thing they pointed out was the perspective of the playwright…I had never really thought about plays being written from a male or female perspective, but when they pointed it out, it was suddenly obvious.”

For playwrights:

We do not accept unsolicited scripts; however we will preview a treatment. If you would like to submit a one page treatment and/or short (no longer than 10 pages) sample of the play, you can email a Word Document or PDF to kit@theatreprorata.org.
