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 member dues to participate and put your play into consideration for Out of Ink. The Fling is primarily virtual this year but we are having a Happy Hour Kickoff Friday, Nov. 20th from 6-8 at OPA! (2050 S. Lamar, Austin 78704). We’ve reserved part of the back room so we can hang out and socialize before the rules are revealed around 7pm. The ingredients will be emailed to all members, for those who can’t attend. You do not have to live in Austin to participate or have your play produced in Out of Ink.
Sun, November 22nd, 5:30pm-?
Gather at the Austin Playwrights Studio* 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 bring the appropriate number of copies for actors and stage directions. SW will provide a company of actors and casting will happen on the spot.
*Austin Playwrights Studio (aka Warren’s place) is in the office park behind Half-Price Books on North Lamar, 5555 N. Lamar, Bldg. K, Ste. 125. The best place to enter is from the back side of the Half Price Books complex. Go south on Guadalupe from Koenig and take the 4th driveway on your right. There’ll be a building with a red awning on your left that says 5426 on it. Continue on and look for Bldg. K on the right. The door to the space says Suites K 123-126, so you won’t see the actual suite number from the parking lot. If you have trouble, call Christi at 512-589-4055.
