NewSCRipts Play-Reading Series


NewSCRipts is a play-reading series that has provided a forum for talented writers for 2​9 years. NewSCRipts gives patrons the opportunity to be a part of SCR's play​-development process during three Monday evening readings.  Experience more: NewSCRipts series subscribers receive tickets to one Pacific Playwrights Festival reading.

Past NewSCRipts readings include Donald Margulies' Collected Stories, Richard Greenberg's Three Days of Rain and Amy Freed's Freedomland—all of which went on to New York productions and were finalists for the Pulitzer Prize—as well as Wit, which won the Pulitzer for author Margaret Edson.
