"They have a talented stable of actors, and the troupe raised the afternoon up from merely a ‘staged reading' into real performance, providing me with a number of insights which I've been able to utilize in the latest draft of the script."
Writers-a-Go-Go was created to promote the works of our contemporary playwrights. A writer herself, Assistant Artistic Director Susane Lee developed W.A.G.G. with the desire to give voice and recognition to our living playwrights. W.A.G.G.'s yearly submission request solicits the finest plays among our emerging and experienced playwrights. W.A.G.G. works closely with the playwright, workshops the play, and includes the author in rehearsals and discussions with the actors as their play is developed.
We produce our annual readings in the informal setting of a bar. This non-traditional environment sets the stage for our actors to work, on their feet, among our audience, the bar patrons. This provides an up-close and intimate experience of this new work for the audience.
These plays are then considered for a fully mounted production within our five-play annual season.

We ask for 15 pages of your work. On a separate page, please have the name of your play, your name and contact information, and a brief synopsis of your play. Since it is a blind submission, please keep your name off your play itself. Please keep a look-out on our Facebook pages in the Fall for our Submissions Request.
Those chosen will be contacted in late January. Our W.A.G.G. workshop readings take place in April.
