How It Started

In 1991 company playwrights Frank Pugliese, Pippin Parker and others watched the Gulf War’s broadcast on television and felt compelled to write about it. Giving themselves a weekly deadline, they began meeting on a regular basis to share their experiences, and thus Tuesdays@9 was born. Twenty-four years later, the program is still an arena for new works hot off the press.

How It Works

T@9 operates on an open submissions and open casting policy.

 

Writers

1) Print two hard copies of your ten-minute excerpt and clearly mark your contact information on the front

2) Attend T@9 with your hard copies in tow

3) At the end of T@9, hand your excerpt to one of our Creative Directors:

  • NYC – Andrea Cirie or Joe Danisi
  • LA – Kevin Hoffer

4) You will be contacted in advance if your excerpt is selected to be read

Please Note:

We welcome all forms of writing at T@9: prose, solo work, poetry, plays, screen plays, music, etc
Online submissions will not be accepted—you must hand in a hard copy
Musicians may supply a CD, USB drive, or inquire about emailing song files or links to their music
