Exciting Opportunity for Female Playwrights!

Attention TheatreMakers and Friends of NOplays!
NOplays and Casa de Beverley are excited to announce a special opportunity for female playwrights.


This season Casa De Beverley is focusing on female playwrights in the tri-state area and we are inviting you to join us at the Casa de Beverley’s dinner on Saturday, August 20th. Bring your 10 minute play (or plays) of 4 characters or less and a synopsis of said play to dinner. We’ll share synopses and Katie Hahn will present the details on the season and important info each playwright needs to participate fully. This dinner will give us a chance to build on the wonderful Casa community you’ll be joining as a playwright for season three. If you cannot attend the dinner, but ARE available for any of the event dates listed below, submit by email: katie@casadebeverley.com

Accepted participants will be notified by August 25th.

We are off the Q train in Brooklyn, street parking available.
The address will be released to participants. Thank you!

There is no charge for playwrights to participate. This year we will ask playwrights to arrange and bring their own cast and director as well as continue to provide scripts for rehearsal and show. Rehearsal is 2-5. Show is 6-9. We can offer some help in the form of email lists of actors and directors if needed.

Note allergies to dogs or cats.

Casa De Beverley’s Mission Statement:

Casa De Beverley is a community and art space located in the heart of Ditmas Park in Brooklyn, New York. Our goal is to build and nurture a community that values creativity and life-long learning. We do this through a variety of events including theater performances, yoga, healthy living get-togethers, guided meditation, personal development, guest lectures, and studies in applied sensuality and sexuality. Anyone and everyone is welcome.

One Acts and Snacks (OAS) is the brainchild of Katie and Orin Hahn. This monthly event combines a love of theater and food with a shared desire to build a community that nurtures burgeoning artists, playwrights, and actors. Our goal is to inspire great artistic endeavors and encourage fascinating conversations between old friends and new. To do this we gather playwrights, actors, and theater lovers in a cozy intimate setting to share what feeds our minds, bodies, and souls.

One Acts and Snacks is not a traditional play performance, but rather a semi-produced table-read. This means that each character is assigned an actor or actress, and the entire script — along with the stage directions — is read in its entirety.

Following the read-through, the audience will be able to interact directly with the playwright, asking questions and providing feedback. Socializing and networking will follow.

Our Script Acceptance Process:
We seek scripts that would benefit most from immediate, in-person, constructive feedback in order to meet our goal of nurturing new art. We look for creative new takes on issues past, present, and future, as well as pieces that lend themselves to artistic discussion. We support a diverse community and welcome all shapes, sizes and shades.

Privacy and Rights:
The playwright retains all rights for any play submitted or performed. We do not permit any audio or video recording of the reading. Photography is not allowed during the reading. Participants and audience members may be photographed during networking time before and after the event. Those who wish their image not utilized in future Casa de Beverley and One Acts and Snacks marketing are encouraged to alert the production team at info@casadebeverley.com

Call for Playwrights and Actors is 3pm and the show begins at 6pm. Please be punctual so we can start the event on-time. We generally go till 9. Plan to attend the entire event.Before and After the Reading:
Immediately after the reading, the floor will open to questions and comments about the play. Audience, playwright, and actors are encouraged to mingle and network after the reading is complete. Snacks and drinks will be available before and after the reading.

We hope to see as many of you as possible on August 20th! Feel free to pass this information along to any other playwrights you know who may be interested in attending.
