Playwrights Conference

Your ideas from page to stage!

June 12-17, 2017

CCM's Playwright's Conference is open to playwrights of all experience levels. Participants will write, take master classes with industry professionals and attend readings of their works. The conference culminates with a public performance, where CCM actors will present a staged reading of excerpts from each playwrights' work.

Those who have a script that they’d like to workshop while they are with us will have a ten-minute section of their play read for an audience at the end of the conference. Those who are just beginning to explore playwriting will write a ten-minute play while they’re here, and that play will be read for an audience at the culminating performance.

CCM Playwrights Conference offers two different tracks: Development and Fundamentals. The Development Track is for participants who already have a play that they want to work on during the conference. The Fundamentals Track is for participants who want to learn the nuts & bolts of playwriting.


During your week with us, you'll:
  • Have exclusive access to our resident dramaturg, Lisa Timmell, director of new work at the Tony award-winning Huntington Theatre Company in Boston
  • Witness the play development process with internationally known playwrights
  • Participate in five master classes taught by renowned theatre professionals
  • Write every day and hear your work read aloud by our resident actors.
  • Hear your work as part of our 10-Minute Play Festival at the close of the conference.
