OPC Live Activities Cancelled Through June

In Class Info, General Update, Readings Info on March 15, 2020 at 12:00 pm


Like many other organizations in the Theater World, the Ohio Playwrights Circle live activities have been cancelled through June of 2020.    We took this action at the beginning of March 2020.  Public health concerns are foremost at this time and we will announce additional activities for the coming season as circumstances change.

In the meantime , check out our Facebook page.  We will be posting resources and fascinating interviews with some of America’s best playwrights.  You will see some online classes and announcements of live and videotaped performances at the Globe Theater in London.

We also, will be looking to start an online round-table of Ohio Playwrights with a chance for writers to check-in and see who writing what and for a bit of advice and a morale  boost from fellow writers.  An announcement will come soon.

Keep writing!
