Held on the first and third Monday of each month in the Little 5 Points Community Center, these sessions are free and open to theatre artists (please see the calendar for exact dates).  

MNCS is our core play development program. WTP member playwrights may submit an excerpt of their work to be read by professional actors and critiqued in a moderated session. The feedback is provided by all who attend, both WTP members and affiliate artists. There are five MNCS moderators: Managing Artistic Director Amber Bradshaw, Associate Development Artist Rebekah Suellau, Mia Kristin Smith, Sofia Palmero and Christopher Hampton.

This community has been energizing for me. It’s stimulating for me as an artist to be around like-minded people that are committed to the craft”.                    -Dana Stringer, WTP Playwright

Once you’re an official member of WTP, you’ll receive an email every two weeks from the Managing Artistic Director requesting submissions for MNCS. The Call for Submissions is sent out on Sunday evening, a full week before the session. That email will include a submission form and detailed instructions. Slots in MNCS are awarded on a first-come-first-serve basis, and up to four pieces can be read and discussed in one night.


MNCS is open and welcoming to all theatre artists. We value a diversity of voices in the room and would love to have you join us. This is a service of WTP, so you must be a member to submit your work to be read.
