The New Works Program features two opportunities: the Staged Reading Series and Table Read Tuesdays, both of which take place multiple times over the course of our 2020–2021 season.
The Staged Reading Series is a program for Gritty City Repertory to support the creation of dynamic new work by playwrights of color. This season's 4 staged readings will focus, respectively, on the themes of Education, Decolonization, Love and Juneteenth.
Table Read Tuesdays are a vehicle for Gritty City Repertory to find new work with potential for future production by our youth ensemble. We are actively seeking to commission and support playwrights in developing work that fits our unique needs — large cast size, characters in their teens, twenties, thirties, and other details you can find on our submission guidelines page.
