Open Call for Monday Night Play Space Performances

Since 2016 Dragon Productions Theatre Company has hosted the Monday Night Play Space. Two Mondays a month (when we can) Dragon Productions Theatre Company opens its doors to local artists to use the space for anything, including staged readings of new plays, local film screenings, poetry slams, stand up comedy, improv demos, books readings, and anything else that the Bay Area artistic community comes up with! You need to workshop a new script in front of an audience? This is your opportunity! As a performer, there's no cost to you but we do need to get some details and book you into a time slot. Our goal is to provide local artists a venue to safely test run a new work or performance set and connect with some new fans while allowing our community a low cost way to experience new art. 

 

Please be aware of the following: 

  • You are responsible for casting your show/reading. 
  • Please note that this is NOT an opportunity to fully produce a new play or musical with a set. There may be a Dragon set already on the stage so we'll be closing the mid-stage curtain to give you the front of the stage as a performance space. This is really intended to workshop a new play with scripts in hand or a new improv set or whatever. Workshop and low tech are the keys here. 
  • You can enter the building at 6p on the night of your performance for set up and a quick walkthru of the performance. We unfortunately cannot accommodate other rehearsal time.
  • We will provide a technician to run lights/sound during the show and to help you get set up for the evening. We will also provide front of house staff to sell tickets and concessions for the show. This event is pay what you will in cash at the door and routinely has pretty solid crowds. Obviously we sell better when you also push the event out to your network of friends and fans. 
  • The doors open for the audience at 7p and the show starts at 7:30p on a Monday night so make sure that your work schedule and traffic accommodate this. The Dragon Theatre is located in downtown Redwood City.

LEGAL TENDER LOVING CARE by Leanna Keyes

Rosie, lost at a public transit station, reacts with surprise when a cute young man approaches her and wants to "share his secrets" with her. Realizing that she's being propositioned for the first time, she declines. Jayden is dejected until she says that she'll gladly "share secrets" with him... for a price. The two head to a hotel, and a comedy of errors unfolds; doubly mistaken identities and hidden histories collide as they spar through awkward puns and performance anxiety.

Directed Kieran Beccia

 

BECAUSE I WENT THERE by Hedvig Flores

In a world where women are in positions of power and privilege, the Wife and Mother face the truths about victim blaming/shaming of their beloved husband/son and their own biases.  The audience must decide the fate of the brilliant promising athletic female student. A compelling exploration of the power struggles between genders through the lens of a sexual assault case.

Directed by Stacey Ardelean

 

NEVER SWIM ALONE by Daniel MacIvor

A swift and darkly funny satire about two egotistical men and their ruthless competition for the title of Top Dog. The play is structured as a surreal verbal sparring match: Frank and Bill, two guys in blue suits and bad ties, square off in a 13 round Battle Royale of vicious undermining and one-upmanship, refereed by their childhood crush.

Directed by Nathanael Card
