Country Playhouse's annual New Play Reading Series is scheduled for March 1st - April 5th , 2009, and is comprised of six Sunday nights of concert readings of new plays (note restrictions below) by Houston-area residents. The readings are rehearsed,

and the public is invited. If you have a play you would like to have considered for presentation in the 2009 Series, please submit it by
December 1, 2008.

Restrictions: plays that occupy a full evening's entertainment are preferred as we only present one writer each evening. These can be full-length plays, companion one-acts, or a series of short plays. Plays for children or young audiences are also considered. If your play has any performance, production or publication history, please enclose a written account of that history with your script. The purpose of this Series is essentially to give new work a first public hearing, but substantially re-worked or expanded scripts will be considered. Since 1993, 98 new works have been presented in the Series. Of these plays, we know that 44 have gone forward with a production, publication, or recognition in a competition.

You can mail the playscript directly to the NPRS Coordinator: Diana Howie, c/o Country Playhouse, P.O.Box 79206, Houston TX 77279-9206. If you have questions, you may contact Diana Howie at "", or by letter to The Country Playhouse.
