Virtual Script Library
NNPN member theaters have access to a powerful online tool: the Virtual Script Library. Housed on the 37Signals software suite in the Cloud, our Library contains a number of "Reading Rooms" which allow members to access scripts we've helped to produce, trade plays of interest and learn about new work from all over the globe. Only member theaters and alumni playwrights may upload scripts to the Library; and only member theaters, alumni playwrights and NNPN Ambassadors have "borrowing privileges" (i.e., donwload capability). If you already have login credentials to the Library, click here to access it. If you are an authorized user and need login credentials, please email General Manager Jojo Ruf here.
Current Reading Rooms include:
- Alumni Plays Reading Room (plays written by alumni of our core programs)
- Commission Partners Reading Room (contributions from our commission partners: Actors’ Theatre of Louisville, Arena, Berkeley Rep, Oregon Shakes, South Coast Rep and Yale Rep)
- Literary Managers Reading Room (where play pitches that come out of our Literary Chats can be found)
- Program Archives Reading Rooms (Plays commissioned by NNPN, produced through the Continued Life of New Plays Fund, presented at the National and DC Showcases, and workshopped through the MFA Playwrights Workshop)
Whenever plays are uploaded to any of these Reading Rooms, literary staff members and/or Artistic Directors of NNPN members are notified. (Individuals uploading plays to the Virtual Script Library are responsible for obtaining permission from the playwrights to do so.)
