What is DG Footlights™?
DG Footlights™ is a gratis program, created and moderated by the Dramatists Guild, that connects dramatists with free space in which to hold a public reading of a new work that is currently in development. This initiative operates on a space-grant model: a representative from the Guild will arrange for a venue to donate space during allocated dates and times, and will ensure that the space is available for dramatists to use to present a self-produced reading to the public, with an optional feedback session following the reading. Attendance is always free and open to all.
The purpose of the DG Footlights™ series is to provide Guild members with an opportunity to gain exposure, to develop their craft, and to obtain credentials. With that in mind, please be sure you are applying with new work that is completed and ready to benefit from a public reading.
Plays will be chosen by lottery to ensure that equal opportunity is offered to anyone who might be interested in submitting.
