What is Tuesdays@9?

     Tuesdays@9 is New York City's longest-running cold reading series for your newest

     work-in-progress. Every week, we cast and present excerpts of new writing to an

     audience of fellow artists and supporters. Tuesdays@9 operates with an open            

     submissions policy throughout the year, and hosts an open casting session at the

     start of each week. Tuesdays@9 has always been—and always will be—free and

     open to all artists and audience members.

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-seven years later, the program is still an arena for new works hot off the press.

Note to the Community:

  • Tuesdays@9 is an open, supportive, and communal environment. You may show up at any point during the season and be welcomed into the community. Attend a lot, attend a little—we’re always here.
