List of Playwrights





For most of us, writing a play takes a damn long time. Wouldn’t it be nice if you just camped out in a room with four other writers for about 8 hours and just punched out a short script?

The 24 Hour Plays: Chicago are looking for 20 writers like that for its June run. But here’s the really great thing. While submitting to the list of playwrights form below does not guarantee your placement into one of those 20 slots, it does secure two things. You will be in the running for one of the 20 slots. You will also be in the running for the weekly 24 Hour Plays we are hoping to do in the future. For those of us not gifted with the math, that’ll be 260 short plays that we need to have written a year.

If nothing else, this directory can serve as an amazing place to post links to your work and publicize the things that you’re working on. These pages will then be viewed by hundreds of actors, directors, producers, and companies who may take a liking to you.

All in the name of community progress, right? :) Submit to the directory using the form below.

Feel free to include a picture of your work that has been performed, or yourself. You can even include a writing sample, if you wish.
