The Weekend Fling is ScriptWorks’ annual 48-hour playwriting event where members use their incurable writing habit to create a ten-minute play in 48 hours.   Muses are provided in the form of three rules/elements that MUST appear in the play.  The Fling is FREE, but you must be current (or get current) on your membership dues to participate and put your play into consideration for Out of Ink.  We are scheduled to do a LIVE production in April at Hyde Park Theatre, so get vaccinated and boostered so that can happen.  The ingredients will be emailed to all members at 6:00 pm CST on Friday, November 19th. You do not have to live in Austin to participate or have your play produced in Out of Ink.

Gather at the Salon to read the fruits of your Fling!  To be read, your play must be typed, and no more than 10-minutes long (a timer will be used), and you must email your script to Christi by 5:00 PM on Sunday.  ScriptWorks will provide a company of actors and casting will happen on the spot. This Salon is open to the public, so bring your friends!

Because we remain at Stage in the Austin Public Health recommendations, we are continuing to meet online. Stage 3 recommendations are for everyone to be masked when indoors, regardless of vaccination status. We want to see the actors’ beautiful and expressive faces, so this event will be virtual.
