Friday, April 2
Works In Progress
Theme: Deception
Guest Host: Colin Hinckley

We are looking for scripts-in-progress with an element of deception:
-Stories where someone is not what they appear…
-Stories where a prank/joke gets out of hand…
-Stories where someone is made to look foolish…
-Stories where someone receives an unwelcome surprise…


For Works in Progress, writers are pre-selected to share up to 10 pages of their script-in-progress in front of an audience. Actors will be cast on the spot at 6pm EST (no advanced casting allowed) and the readings will begin at 7pm EST.
