Playful Substance develops new plays and supports writers through our Writers' Groups, workshops, readings and networking events. Our annual Pithy Party highlights the works in progress from our Writers' Groups along with 2-3 full productions each season that are generated from inside our ever expanding network of artists. In addition, Playful Substance produces the Good Works Series; community centered events that highlight the contributions of local charitable organizations, locally owned and operated businesses, and engaged creatives to share their respective work with their community at large.
Our community is inclusive and dedicated to minimizing the barriers to a creative life. Class, race, physical ability, sexual orientation, identity, age, or status as a caregiver should not keep anyone from being part of a creative community. We all deserve to be seen, but we also have the responsibility to see.
Our promise to our audience is fun. Even when the subject matter is dark, we should be continually reminded that our emotional landscape is nothing to fear, that emotions are survivable, even useful, and that feeling in a room full of strangers who are feeling the same thing is an easy way to remember how much we have in common.
Playful Substance is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of Playful Substance must be made payable to Fractured Atlas only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
