Plays In Progress Series Weekend – via ZOOM Webinar – (June 5th and 6th, 2021)
June 5 @ 12:00 pm
One event on June 6, 2021 at 12:00 pm
Athena Project’s annual Plays In Progress (PIP) Series returns Saturday and Sunday, June 5th and 6th, 2021 as a sequence of virtual table readings and panels featuring incredible playwrights, directors, dramaturgs and actors from across the country. The PIP Series is a unique program fostering new works by women playwrights and seeks to uplift the voices of women* artists while enriching patrons’ understanding of the new play development process. It’s designed to give playwrights and audiences an opportunity to interact with work as it is being created. This year we highlight four playwrights from over 300 that were submitted from the U.S., U.K., and Thailand.
Patrons are able to select from two ticketing options. A Series Pass grants ticket holders access to all readings, talkbacks, and the Submitting to PIP Q & A conversation. A Backstage Pass grants ticket holders access to the full PIP Series like never before, admitting patrons to all readings and talkbacks, both the Submitting to PIP Q & A conversation and the How Industry Insiders Read a Play Panel, a future Athena Project Read & Rant event featuring one of the Series plays, attendance at an open rehearsal, and some special behind-the-scenes surprises.
Full schedule is available on Athena Project’s website: https://athenaprojectarts.org/pip/
Events take place from noon – 9pm on Saturday and Sunday, June 5th and 6th, 2021.
All events will be held virtually via Zoom Webinar. The Series Pass is available to the General Public for $15. The Backstage Pass is available to the General Public for $25. Entertainers and theatre artists who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic can buy the Backstage Pass at a discounted industry rate of “pay what you can!”
Since Plays In Progress Series’ inception we have introduced 7 World Premieres and workshopped over 50 plays. Five have gone on to be fully produced by other theatres across the U.S.
