First Draft

First Draft, Chicago Dramatists bi-Monthly meetings of Network Members, stands as a core essential of the Network Playwright Program. Members meet on the second and fourth Monday of every month, where they read and critique one another’s work in a safe, peer-setting, guided by a theater professional. Each session, a new full-length play from a member is read for an invited audience. Readings are free and open to the public, and seating is first come, first served. Donations are welcome.


Our next First Draft will be eight 10-minute plays, all from First Draft Writers. See below for details!
