Urban Playwright's Club
Urban Playwright’s Club
Are you a playwright looking for feedback, inspiration, or writing accountability? Join this monthly meet-up of playwrights and hone your writing skills by sharing a scene from your script. Whether you’re working on your first play, or are an established playwright, all levels of experience are welcome.
Attendees will be asked to bring a theatrical work-in-progress and have the chance to participate in reading each other’s work aloud. Feedback/suggestions will only be offered by group members at the playwright’s request.

Sarah’s written work has been produced through Urban Stories Theatre, Clowns With Issues, New Vintage Theatre, Prairie Sky Productions, Grid View Theatre, and most recently by Listen To Your Mother NYC, where she performed a monologue she wrote about her experience with motherhood.
