Join the Dramatists Guild for a nation-wide "Pens Down" event to celebrate the completion of End of Play.® 2023! 



At this celebration, you'll get to connect with other End of Play.® participants, and share your experience. Volunteer event coordinators will also host a series of breakout rooms on a variety of topics for folks to connect on a more intimate basis.


Discussion topics will include:

  • How was your End of Play.® writing month? Were there any wonderful or challenging moments?
  • How do you know when it's time to present your first draft to others?
  • How do you know when it's time to start revising your work?
  • When do you know that your play is ready to submit to development or production opportunities?



Come celebrate your hard work, and learn more about possible next steps for your play or musical. Grab your favorite cocktail, mocktail, or beverage of choice, and join us online!


This FREE event is open to everyone.


End of Play.® is an annual initiative, created by the Dramatists Guild, to incentivize the completion of new plays, scores, or songs throughout the month of April. Since the launch of End of Play.® back in 2020, hundreds of participants from all over the world have connected with one another, uniting to overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of creating new theatrical work.
