The Dark Room

  • The Church at CPT 6407 Detroit Avenue Cleveland, OH, 44102 United States (map)

Cleveland Public Theatre’s The Dark Room is an "open mic" where playwrights take center stage and give their work a chance to grow. Held on the second Tuesday of each month, The Dark Room is open to all writers and performers as well as audience members interested in cold readings of new scripts. Part of CPT's New Play Development programming, The Dark Room provides new and experienced writers the opportunity to test drive their new play, novel, poem, or any other written material in a supportive, yet critical, environment. Playwrights may bring up to 10 pages of material and actors are cast on the spot.

Due to the historic nature of the space, The Church is not ADA compliant at this time.

7:00pm: Sign-up begins for writers and actors (space is limited). Writers can bring up to 10 pages of work to be read; actors will be cast on the spot.

Actors must arrive by 7:15pm to be considered.

7:30pm: Open Mic Session readings begin
