Speed Dating

Much like an actual speed dating event, where one goes to find the person they would love to date, our Speed Dating is set up to help artists find others with whom they'd love to work. We also hope to simply get a variety of theater artist chatting about their work with people they might not normally have the opportunity to talk with. 12 directors and 12 playwrights meet up. Each has one minute to talk about their work (with a couple of extra minutes to shoot the breeze). At the end of the night each had contact information for everyone in the room and hopefully some sparks for new working relationships!


Rain City Projects hosts writing events. Participants bring a laptop or notebook, grab a hot beverage and sustenance, join other playwrights around a table (or Zoom virtual room) for a group writing session. We provided writing prompts, but some writers work independently on their own plays. It's an excuse to write, sure, but we all need deadlines.

New Plays | No Pants Required

Virtual play readings created in response to the quarantine restrictions. During each of these popular Zoom events, two playwrights share 20-30 minutes of their work with up to the 30 theatre artists, all from the comfort of their homes. Readers volunteer from the virtual audience, RCP board members facilitate, tracking time, and moderating the constructive feedback. We are excited to come together virtually to hear and share your work with the community.

Interested in attending as a WRITER, LISTENER, or READER? EMAIL US. Please include New Plays | No Pants Required in the subject and let us know how you'd like to participate.

Theater is often a very social environment. Not so for the lonely playwright, isolated in the corner writing dialogue, often into the wee hours of the morning. Our purpose is to bring these artists together in a room to talk about craft, current projects, gossip, whatever. May the weather be superb or dreadful (we've been known to operate in snowed-in conditions), the food will be delectable, the company splendid. Join us!
