A while back, I decided I was tired of sending my plays to theaters and not hearing back. I was also tired of wasting money on printing and postage.

Anybody else feel the same way? :)

So I was looking around Paul Mullin's blog (http://www.paulmullin.org/, if you'd like to take a look), and I found something he had done to get audiences for a play of his. What's more, they paid well.

Basically, his play "The Sequence" was very popular with biotech companies; they did readings at conferences and symposiums.

He wrote about this here: http://www.paulmullin.org/just-wrought/2010/09/when-plays-pay-in-odd-ways.html

I think this could work for just about anybody, which is why I'm posting it here. In fact, I'm trying the same thing, finding an audience for a play of mine about nuns who make moonshine during Prohibition.

I'm blogging about my campaign at http://playwrightsmuse.wordpress.com/, or if you're on Facebook, at http://www.facebook.com/PlaywrightsMuse.

If you try this for a play of yours, let me know how it works.
