Announcing American Bard Theater Company’s first Playwright Invitational.

We are seeking full length plays for consideration for

our fall 2022 Corner Stone Reading Series. 

   "Writers! Thank you for your submissions to our first Playwright Invitational.

We have reached the maximum number of plays

that we are able to accept for this event.

Our Corner Stone Reading Series - featuring staged readings of the top three plays - will be presented on

September 19, October 3, and October 24, 2022, in midtown Manhattan. 

These plays will be considered for American Bard Theater Company’s

the next fully-staged production.

Our Corner Stone Reading Series was started in 2015 as an opportunity to work with our network of artists and invite our audience into the incubation process of a potential fully-staged production for American Bard. These readings are offered as free programming and are open to the public.

The top three plays will be announced by August 22, 2022

We thank you and look forward to getting to know you and your work!
