Upcoming Deadlines


Submit to Spring Reading Series

Do you have a new play that would benefit from a public reading with actors specifically cast for your work? It's time to submit to the PCSF Spring 2019 Reading Series.

The reading series is open to all members. Plays are vetted by a Literary Committee for readiness for a reading.

Developmental readings are unrehearsed and are performed without blocking (stage movement). Staged readings get up to 12 hours rehearsal and may receive minimal blocking.

The deadline to send us your play is Monday, Dec. 3, 11:59 pm.

PCSF hits 1600 plays

PCSF has hit a milestone! As of July 15, 2018, PCSF has brought 1600 plays to the stage in the form of public readings and productions. Some of these plays have gone on to readings and productions elsewhere.

We are proud of our record supporting Bay Area playwrights in honing their work, and we are proud of and grateful to the playwrights, directors, actors, volunteers, donors, and others who have brought us this far and are bringing us into the future of theatre.
