The Playwrights' Center general auditions will be held on Wednesday, August 21 from 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. and Thursday, August 22 from 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. The audition will consist of reading one or two of the sides listed below. We will provide printed copies. Please bring an updated headshot and resume.

Please read the following carefully before requesting an audition.

If you are interested in scheduling an audition, please email casting@pwcenter.org with your availability, headshot, and resume. (If you have been involved with a Playwrights' Center workshop or have auditioned in the last two years, there is no need to audition this year.)

The Playwrights' Center develops 50-60 new plays each year, and seeks actors to participate in development workshops. After our general auditions, we will update our database of actors to be considered for workshops. We contact actors throughout the year to cast individual workshops. Most workshops are between 10-25 hour contracts. Almost all workshops are held on weekdays in the morning and afternoon. Please do not request an audition if you do not have daytime availability.

Both equity and non-equity actors are encouraged to audition.

If you would like to read the play that the excerpt is taken from, please email Julia at juliab@pwcenter.org.

PLEASE NOTE: These sides are for audition purposes only. None of the plays represented below will be workshopped this season. You are welcome to choose any of the following sides, even if they don't necessarily match your age, race, or gender. We will have printed copies available for you. Please choose one side to read—if you would like to choose a backup as well you may, in rare cases we may ask for another one.
