The Bus Stop Theatre Co-Op is accepting applications for our inaugural Playwrights Unit.

Starting in November, selected playwrights will attend a monthly meeting and begin writing a brand new play.  Members will act as a dramaturgy hivemind for each other’s developing scripts, housing a creative space to connect with other playwrights on a consistent and focused basis. These meetings will culminate in a week of staged readings at the Bus Stop Theatre in August 2017.

Writers in The Playwrights Unit will also will be responsible for creating content for Bus Stop Theatre events, leading writing exercises on a rotating monthly basis, and some other rad stuff too!

To apply please send us the following by Sunday September 25th at

1. A statement of interest (what you would love to get out of the experience and why ‘dramaturgy hivemind’ sounds good to you)

2. The idea for the play you will be writing (this does not have to be in-depth whatsoever!)

3.Theatre/Writing CV

The Playwrights Unit is for emerging artists who have had at least one play produced.
