What we're up to...

There hasn't been much on the 517 Playwright's blog since December 2009, but it's for lack of effort. Right now, we are working to finalize: 1) the details for this year's play contest; 2) the details for the 2010 new plays festival, and ; 3) the publication of an anthology of the plays produced last year in Midway. I'm not sure when all of this and more will be arranged, but probably by late February, early March, most of the details will be finalized and announced on this blog, by Tweets, and on our Meetup site. So please keep checking in... news is on its way. Thanks so much.

Meetings will be held at Common Grounds Coffee House

Future meetings of 517 Playwrights will be held at Common Grounds Coffee House on High Street in Lexington. I tried putting this on the Meetup notice board of the group but somehow it didn't get posted and I have yet to figure out what I did wrong. In any event Common Grounds will be our regular meeting place begining with the February meeting. See you there!

We are now on MeetUp

517 Playwrights is now a member organization on MeetUp. There are meetups across the US and around the world for every sort of interest one can imagine including board gamers, singles, hikers and tah dah... drum roll please... playwrights. Information about our meetings and events will now be posted on MeetUp. You can get there by typing in the "MeetUp" into Google (etc.) and then typing in playwrights and the zip code for the location of the meeting (40507) or simply 517 Playwrights. You can RSVP to meetings or events, you can learn more about the organization-- you can see a picture of Bill McCann as Charlie Martin in On Golden Pond-- and you can learn about our members. Please sign up (it doesn't cost you anything!) and help our membership grow.
