Our Mission

PLAYWRIGHTS ON PARK is an exciting artistic endeavor for Playhouse on Park. Our mission is to develop and produce original plays, to foster emerging and established playwrights, and to become a leader in new play development. We aim to help establish the Greater Hartford Area as a premiere destination for the cultivation and exploration of innovative theatrical work.

Submissions are accepted throughout the month of May; read by an extensive Reader’s Circle who choose 6 plays to be included in our upcoming Playwrights on Park season.  

Playwrights selected as part of the Playwrights on Park Reading Series will have a day of rehearsal, followed by a reading of their play and a talkback with the audience.

Submit plays to newworks@playhousetheatregroup.org
