I recently started a group on MySpace called the New Play Network.  If you'd like to check it out, it's at:

http://groups.myspace.com/newplaynetwork

Here's the Mission Statement:

A networking hub for playwrights, artistic directors, literary managers, directors, dramaturgs, and other theatre professionals passionate about nuturing new plays, from readings to productions. Tell us what you're working on, what you're looking for, what you'd like to get involved with. Hot scripts? Writers worth watching? Exceptional theatres or development programs? Directors or actors seeking new properties? This is a place to confab, connect, compare notes, and, it is hoped, cross-pollinate. Plus feel free to upload images from recent productions or broadcast production notices for new plays or calls for scripts.


Thanks,

Steve

Well, the New Play Network (http://groups.myspace.com/newplaynetwork) has been up and running for a week, and so far we have an amazing 75 members. Here's thanking all the theatres, playwrights, and directors who have joined.

Again, the network is intended as a place where:

--artistic directors and literary managers can describe their programs and theatre mission statements, post calls for scripts, and share stories about scripts they've nurtured;

--directors and actors can talk about the kinds of plays they'd be interested in working on or tell war stories from the script development trenches; and

--playwrights can introduce themselves and their works, and offer other playwrights possible leads.

I've just added a "synopses corner" where playwrights can post a synopsis for a play, and I'm encouraging writers to upload production photographs to the group photo library (theatres or directors who have developed new work are also welcome and encouraged to upload photos). I've posted a synopsis for my Vietnam War play WAITING ON SEAN FLYNN just to get the ball rolling. If playwrights post a synopsis and production photo, I'll try to keep the most recent photo as the default for the group.

We're definitely off to a good start. I'd be delighted if the group leads to a reading or production, but, man, how terrific it would be if it led to fruitful collaboration between artists or even a full production or two.

Cheers,

Steve

The New Play Network is now one month old and has (as of last night) 160 members.

That is all.
