Each month, from October through March, PlayGround announces a topic to a pre-selected writers pool of Bay Area emerging professional playwrights, inviting the submission of original ten-page plays. The best six of these plays are presented as staged readings before a live audience on the third Monday of the month at Berkeley Repertory Theatre, featuring some of the Bay Area's best directors and actors. Pre-show discussions each month provide additional insight into the writers' process, the state of Bay Area theatre, and other aspects emerging out of the monthly topics.
